“I am going to tell you the story of a snout

he wanted to be like his favorite hero

I waited at the window for the door to knock

another day that dad did not arrive.

He’s tired of waiting

little man, you must not cry

people will never change

Mom always repeated it.

How easy it was to delude

crumbs to repair

so many years of solitude

sweetheart, please don’t wait alone.

One is born and one dies alone

and although it hurts, well I’ll be

because in the end, life puts everything in its place

Alone, I learned the hard way and no way.

And although you broke me, I forgive you

Who would have thought that at last I was not going to need you.

Years have passed, that little face is now a man

he still misses his daddy like a child,

No matter how hard you try and try to understand

What did he do wrong so that he didn’t love him?
