Manuel Acuņa


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.
