You came in the midst of stormy scary winds
I was asleep (though).
You awakened me, coming in my mind with music and rhythms
I was staring, I was asleep.

Forgetting everything of the past, I look forward to the new dawn
Story of the past and memories of the lost days

You entered the deep recesses of mind.
That sweet feeling, that bright cognition
Only with that (memory) have I swept myself away.
