Because you left the world of sorrows
looking for joy in another sky
that here, if it is born, it only lasts a day,
and even that among shadows, doubts and fears.
Because in pursuit of another world and other flowers
you left this dark region,
where your giant soul felt
condemned to continuous disappointments.
I come to say my congratulations
by sending you the eternal farewell
that fills my heart with pain;
that although your departure is cruel and very sad,
if joys is alien to life,
Better is the grave than life.
