On Saturday Gloria Lerin led Sensory Awareness on a Zoom call.  You can find information about Sensory Awareness here: https://sensoryawareness.org.

Gloria shared the lyrics to this song written by Fito Paez of Argentina.  She said “he wrote this song after the guerrillas killed his auntie, grandmother and the person who took care of them in their house”. Here are his words. I note there are different translations, so choose what speaks to you.

I Come to Offer My Heart

Who said everything is lost?

I come to offer my heart

So much blood that flows in a river,

I come to offer my heart

It won’t be easy, I know what will happen,

It won’t be as simple as I thought,

Like opening the chest and taking out the soul,

A cut of love

The Moon of the poor is always shining,

I come to offer my heart

Fixed in stone

I come to offer my heart

And I will unite the ends of the same bow,

And I will go quietly, I will go slowly,

And I will give you everything, and you will give me something,

Something to ease me a little more

When no one is near or far,

I come to offer my heart

Where the satellites don’t reach,

I come to offer my heart

And I’m talking about countries and hopes,

I speak for life, I speak for nothing,

I’m talking about changing this, our home,

To change it, just to change it.

Who said everything is lost?

I come to offer my heart
