Who will write my life?
Who will weigh my sins
and all the good, perhaps, have I had?
Who will pardon me for having existed
for so long, having changed so little?
Will my witnesses honor me and tell
all the love I have spread by the way?
May I take until my last home all the joy
I have been bathed in by birth,
that life’s disillusions have never dried.
I know there has been an angel
who has guided me, mainly
in some dark and strange nights.
