Talk to me, as if you don't know anything. 
Recognize me, as a woman in a poem 
I will go find your music, 
Please turn the sound down, it's too loud. 
Turn your gaze to mine
A halo of hope would have been enough. 
How much winter threatens to freeze your skin, 
It would be enough to finish the time 
The moment your eyes closed. 
Today without you, I only feel cold
Frequent uncertainty
Shadow gaps
Fear that paralyzes

You are no longer... 
A thousand voices shout at me and I dissolve in them
You burst like a whip into my wounded side. 
I arrived crying... 
I look for you in the house, 
I hug a sigh. 
I look at the horizon that doesn't know 
Where I lost the memory, 
Your absence embraces me, 
The tide of tears does not pause. 
And so I fall asleep, while your 
Dear husband 
Rest in peace
