All I ever wanted
by Antonio C Oliveira

All I ever wanted was to be loved
Beauty was far away from my mirror
Darkness was my roommate at night
My wrinkles express the victory I never won
And my body reminds me of my exhaustion

The sun won?t rise on my deck anymore
And my empty house brings back no memories
There will be no flowers growing 
My name is covered with shame

The judges will execute the sentence
And no lawyer will defend my cause
My faith left my soul
My heart is too weak to beat

All I ever wanted was to have more time
To fill my soul with hope
To fight against the enemy in the battlefield
And to see a flower grow again on my deck.
