I did not cry yesterday. The time has come to finish the worst years of our lives. Mineiro, this sacred temple, welcomed us in a ceremony the place we reaffirmed our inexplicable love. But I did not cry yesterday.

At the finish of the math battle with Vasco, my physique was too small to deal with the avalanche of emotions. I bought the proper outcome. I sensed Luvannor’s objective and when it occurred yesterday I did not cry.

I hugged my little brother Bernard near my coronary heart and so many different people who came with me to say how a lot my phrases touched their hearts. That was yesterday and I did not cry.

It dawned. I remained static in the stands, confused by the occasion. Dazed with a lot love coming from the blue and starry crowd, I remembered each chapter of my 46 years on the Cruzeiro. From the first look in the stadium that my grandfather took, and all the occasions that I had, even away from the pitch, the endurance of others for my fixed absence, as a result of I used to be devoting myself to working for Cruzeira. But grateful for all the things, I did not cry yesterday.

As the group gathered in the middle circle for the conventional welcome, I heard the boy subsequent to me tearfully say, “This is for my grandfather. He died. Our finest conversations had been about the Cruzeiro.” My eyes virtually watered, however I did not cry yesterday.

Now, the day after the starry blue catharsis, as I scribbled these recollections, I had a clairvoyance as to why. I did not cry as a result of my eyes needed to be clear to make out the many tears round me.

The gentleman carrying the heavenly cap checked out me. He clenched his raised fists frantically. He did not say a single phrase. None of them could be crucial as a result of I noticed tears wipe his face of riot for three years of listening to the bloggers and billionaires of Brazilian Misria deal with the fall of Cruzeiro with the glee of a sadistic slave proprietor, a chilly-blooded rapist, a corrupt poor man. , a fascist imbecile.

A boy is kneeling on the stairs. Palms collectively, in supplication place. His face was virtually pressed towards the moist ground. Their whispers couldn’t be heard. It wasn’t crucial as I noticed the ache of the penalty in 2019 or the humiliating defeats in 2020 and 2021 tear from his face.

A phenomenal woman in white pants crossed the path. He shouted incoherent verses. It would not have mattered if he understood them, as I used to be attempting to free him from the disgrace of rooting for groups made up of piles of rubbish.

A father together with his son “on a horse” on his neck, drumming his head, not realizing the cause for the celebration of the different 60,000 youngsters of all ages in ecstasy. The delight of sharing this second together with her offspring introduced her to tears and she or he let loose a sob, trapped in virtually two years of the pandemic, unable to enter the studio to increase her fingers and voice to assist the wounded Cruzeiro virtually to demise .

The night time was filled with hundreds of tears to wipe away, additionally homesickness (ah, Salom…) and ready. The crowd mourned the reward for their wrestle.

101 years in the past, these people bought collectively and determined to create a group to name their very own. Now, after three of the worst years of the lifetime of this stunning creature that comes from the streets known as Cruzeiro/Palestra, these similar people – with fingers, arms, voices and tears – are lifting her up once more.

From the people came the Cruzeiro. For the people, the Cruzeiro is coming back.

And your tear yesterday washed away what? Whatever it’s, I’m right here to say “thanks a lot” for donating your tear to return our cruise ship to the place it ought to by no means have left.

Still, now I’ll lastly enable myself to cry my very own.
