Quando você partir
o vento vai movimentar
o vazio

ele descansará
sobre os móveis
como poeira

O silêncio
ocupará
todos os espaços

Meu coração
partido em mil pedaços
não poderá ser colado
com condolências.


When you're gone
the wind will carry
the emptiness

it will settle
over the furniture
like dust

Your absence
will
occupy the spaces

My heart
broken into thousand small pieces
which won't glue back together
with condolences.

  1. You did say you were going to write something. I had forgotten.

    Oh, Kenia! What desolation. It's heartbreaking. But it's important we defend the right to be inconsolable.

    The images you use are crystal clear. They can't be ignored, even if our hearts would want to.

  6. Heart wrenching.

    I like the way you've expressed your grief. The void seems to large to be filled and even superglue can't bring together those pieces.
