My Life Smiles

(translation/version of Mi Vida Sonríe por Tus Gestos)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

My life does not weep in mourning …
… Because of you, my life smiles.

Make me laugh with smiling gestures, Coquette …
… and embrace me with the steady winds
that caress the desert’s hellish heat.

Infuse life into this fallen soul
and make a smile out of my lips.
Soothe me with fresh breezes
over waves of warming joy.
