Pedacinho a ti, pedacinho a mim

"Grande é a poesia, a bondade e as danças...
Mas o melhor do mundo são as crianças, (...)"
(Fernando Pessoa)
É... é verdade. Não obstante tudo, as crianças continuam a nascer ávidas de sorrir, de tomarem-nos para elas, de nos amarem e de nos acarinharem.
Como hoje, aquela bebé, que não me conhecia de lado nenhum, que, logo que me viu de mão estendida para ela, me deu o seu pão, se sorriu a ver-me comê-lo e que, mal teve mais pão na mão, o continuou a repartir, pedacinho a ti, pedacinho a mim...
Foi mesmo um pedacinho de vida giro, no intervalo de discussões valentes sobre as coisas da escola...
Será isto lamechice de sexta-feira cansada?... Seja. Soube-me bem; à bebé, parece-me que também. Seguramente também a quem estava ali à volta, e não eram tão poucos quanto isso!..
Heal The World
Michael Jackson
Composição: Michael Jackson
There's a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be
Much brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
There's no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me
If you want to know why
There's love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we can't feel fear or dread
We stop existing and start living
Then it feels that always loves enough
For us growing
So make a better world
Make a better world
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me
And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify its soul
Though it's plain to see this world is heavenly
Be god's glow
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel
You are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we'll cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords
Into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me [3x]
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me [2x]
You and for me (Make a better place) [3x]
You and for me (Heal the world we live in)
You and for me (Save it for our children) [4x]
