Who Has Stolen Me The Month Of April?

Into the shelter of failure,
where there is not consolation or elevator
only abandonment and humidity
it share a same mattress
and when the life happens
on the street, like a hurricane,
a man with gray suit
pulls out a dirty calendar of his
pocket and shouts:
 
Who has stolen me the month of April?
But, how can this happen to me
Who has stolen me the month of April?
I kept it in the box
where I keep my heart.
 
The girl from the High School Class1
has suspended almost all subjects
in the course, because this boy
got her pregnant.
And when the Latin teacher
passes the list on the blackboard
with tears of heartbreak,
roll down the page of a blog
and writes this:
 
Who has stolen me the month of April?
But, how can this happen to me
Who has stolen me the month of April?
I kept it in the box
where I keep my heart.
 
The husband of my Mother
left in the last train
with a hairdresser
twenty years younger than him
and when they exhibit those laughs
from Instamatic in Paris,
my old Mother defeated and miserable
watching 'Falcon Crest'2 in her chair
and only think:
 
Who has stolen me the month of April?
But, how can this happen to me
Who has stolen me the month of April?
I kept it in the box
where I keep my heart.
