I have nothing against you, death,
I don’t even hate you
As some others curse you, I mean.
Just as they equally blame light.
But what would you do and how would it be
If you had a mother and she died?!
What would you do and how would it be
If you had children and they died?!
I have nothing against you, death.
I don’t even hate you.
You will be great, I will be small.
But only through my own life do I live.
I have no fear, no dread,
I only have pity for you
For you never had a mother.
For you never had children.
