Don’t give up

by Mario Benedetti
Don’t give up, you still have time to reach up and start anew, Accept your shadows,
 Bury your fears, 
Free your burdens,
 Fly again.
Don’t give up, that’s what life is Continue the journey, Follow your dreams, Unstuck time,
 Move the rubble,
 And uncover the sky.
Don’t give up, please don’t give way, Even if the cold burns,
 Even if fear bites,
 Even if the sun sets,
 And the wind goes silent, There is still fire in your soul
There is still life in your dreams.
Because life is yours and yours is the desire Because you have loved it and because I love you Because wine exists and love is true.
 Because there are no wounds that time doesn’t cure.
To open the doors,
 Take away the locks,
 Abandon the walls that have protected you,
To live life and accept the challenge Get back laughter, Practice a song, 
Lower the guard and extend the hands 
Open the wings
And try again,
 Celebrate life and take back the skies.
Don’t give up, please don’t give way, Even if the cold burns,
 Even if fear bites,
 Even if the sun sets,
 And the wind goes silent, There is still fire in your soul
There is still life in your dreams.
Because every day is a new beginning, Because this is the hour and the best moment. Because you are not alone, because I love you.
