O Verdadeiro Dom

Renato Sakate 1978 (Botucatu)



Tu me tirastes as correntes d'ouro
me libertastes dos grilhões de prata
dos meus anseios, seduções piratas
dos meus orgulhos, ilusões, tesouros...

Me acorrentava às ilusórias latas
desvanecia às irreflexões do couro
Escravocrata de mim mesmo; mouro
perdido em terras por demais geladas.

Logo, se afaste de mim esmeralda!
A tua vaidade me desata as forças
no mesmo egoísmo que não me faz falta.

O meu Senhor me retirou da forca
e me mostrou que o eterno é de alma em alma
que o verdadeiro dom é o d'ouro amor.
