i did the thing

This long fatigue, will be greater one day 
and the soul will tell the body it does not want to go on 
dragging its mass by the rosy path, 
Where men, content to live, walk on

You will feel beside you, digging briskly,
another sleeper comes to the quiescent town.
I’ll wait until they covered me completly…
And we will talk for an eternity!

Only then you will know why your flesh
did not mature for those profound bones
you had to descend, without tiredness, to sleep.

There will be light in the dark place of fate,
you will know our alliance was written in the stars
and once broken the huge covenant, you had to die…

Death Sonnets II, Gabriela Mistral.
