EL REGALO PRECIOSO DE LA VIDA
(Life’s Precious Gift)
Translated into Spanish by Xavier Acosta

Desdeñaste mi regalo-
Una pequeña baratija
Que te ofreci;
Pensaste que era una cosa demasiado insignificante;
Mas, si hubieras querido,
Atisbar el interior de esa fragil prenda barata
Solo cerrar los ojos
Y el corazon abrir,
Hubieras visto
Lo que solo la verdad puede mostrar:
El regalo mas precioso de la vida:
El Amor



LIFE’S PRECIOUS GIFT
By: Randall Butisingh

You spurned my gift
A little trinket thing
Which I did offer you;
You thought it was too small a thing;
Yet, if you had cared to peep
Within that frail cheap token,
But close the eyes
And open out the heart,
You would have seen
What only truth can show:
Life’s most precious gift –
Love.
