"Mi Primer Verso" by Ernesto Cordero
Mi Primer Verso
Mi primer verso cómo fue ,quién sabe acaso lo soñé
o lo lloré, o lo sentí, o lo pensé
Acaso nunca lo escribí, no sé, no sé
My first verse how it was, who knows what I dreamed
or I cried, or I felt it, or I thought
Maybe I never wrote it, I dont know, I dont know
