This will not be my last stroll round city to see you. But it is going to be the last of our return journeys, for at the finish of the coming evening, entwined in your “all embraces,” for minutes, below the concrete display screen of this sky-blue temple known as the Miniero, you and I, Cruzeiro, we will bear witness to this lengthy martyrdom. Let’s make the finish a second to reaffirm our unimaginable love.
For 101 years you’ve got been an element of hundreds of lives. It was born out of folks’s wrestle in opposition to social injustice and racial and financial inequalities. That was type. If your dedication provides us achievements, our dedication will encourage you to beat the ache with your personal toes. By turning into sturdy, we get rid of the impurities of coercion, bargaining, victimization and even false entanglements. On the opposite, loving you is at all times a presupposition of separation; supply with out anticipating something in return; Appreciate others greater than ourselves.
In a letter I wrote for his a centesimal birthday, to inform a little bit about our story, I wrote: “Cruzeiro/Palestra was a membership constructed by its followers who wished to name their very own crew.” Before you have been born, you already dreamed.
Your companions, your ardent followers, simply wished to have you ever by their aspect, providing you their breasts to consolation you, to really feel cherished. Thus, the left aspect was lined with a blue material, with 5 brilliant stars pulsating.
I do not forget that afternoon/night in 2019 once you, destroyed, fell. I swallowed the tears, turned my again and walked away with out trying again. It wasn’t a scarcity of love. On the opposite, he was afraid of not having the ability to please him anymore. But quickly I handed the wall and browse: “Life is a breath.” You keep in my goals.
When the entanglement is true and truthful, the place the comforts of fortune should not current, comparable to the billionaires of Brazil Miseria or the egos of Turma do Saptenis, any trauma from the previous could be overcome. Just a drop of braveness. And you saved it, Cruzero. When he confirmed it to me, it was as much as me and my companions in the Holy Shroud to fill the stands, asking them: “Let’s, collectively, we are able to make it again.”
Day by day, sport by sport, as guests in Belo Horizonte or elsewhere, we battle. We savored each objective like an ideal kiss. Every victory as an unforgettable reminiscence. With every advance in the face of adversity, the want for the speedy arrival of the subsequent meeting.
Some informed him: “The crowd will depart you.” Poor unfortunates, loudmouths and haters. They bought it fallacious.
In failed unions, artificially sustained, the different has to endure ache, guilt, or “it has to endure, in any other case it is not Lourdes” is an addictive drug, as a result of the one who takes benefit of it hides submission. Not surprisingly, there’ll at all times be a “village” – in the service of their bosses – able to encourage groups of financial elites for this bias, as a result of for love… ah, cruzeiros… for unimaginable love, they are going to by no means be.
We do not permit ourselves to turn out to be lazy, snug. We are a crew of completely happy folks from Minas Gerais. Our union is marked by excessive pleasure by way of an album full of heroic and immortal pages. A ardour worthy of self-importance in its mild and infantile sense.
We went by way of the saddest second of our lives and right here we’re, standing collectively passionately. Precisely as a result of we consider in what drives and feeds companionship: the everlasting ardour for wanting to carry palms. With every battle, we reaffirmed this dedication and have been rewarded. The proficient Gilberto Gil, a Cruzeiro at coronary heart, will translate our victory as follows:
Peace invaded my coronary heart
Suddenly I used to be crammed with peace
Like a storm wind
Tear my toes off the floor
Where I not bury myself
The time has come for the finish of the worst years of our lives, Cruzeiro. We are again, my love.
