Atrium (M.R)

Fresh breath and warm blood,
you know you are,
more than essential,

A-trium, podría tu permanecer? (would you stay?)
further and, and for fervor
cause, blossoms to bind to an ancient tomb,
the dusty fingers which have quit,

if anyone, deserves it more,
a monument for, your loving words,
Yo no, sé quién. (I do, not know who.)

A-trium, yo rezo cada vez más por tu amor, (I pray more and more for your love,)
I pray for your happiness,
wherever in, and whatever for,
drives your heart,

if any-one, deserves it more,
a temple for, the fire you raise,
el fiebre en mi cabeza (the fever in my head)

swept in, your fondness,
Atrium, the ice thaws,
the blood pumps,
oxygen again,
swept in, your caring,
Atrium, the ink runs,
the words flow,
a long time coming,

a fraction here,
of the healing words you've said,
A-trium, si yo pudiera darte el mundo, (If I could give you the world,)
para que sea aún. (to make it even.)

I love how you used two languages! (English & Spanish -- right?)
