For my dear friend Ann

My friend Ann lost her mother today after a long battle with cancer.


I Believe

Reposent en paix.

A l'avenir, il y a un moment que nous ne pouvons pas voir;
Là-bas, une immensité que nous ne pouvons pas savoir;
En avant est la vie que nous devons vivre.

Entrelacés sont l'au-delà et l'avant,
Comme l'union d'un coucher du soleil avec la vague de l'horizon;
Toute différente, comme la nuit du jour.

Pourtant, sans l'un est l'autre injustifié.
Tout ce qui commence finira bientôt
Et, dans la fin, commence à nouveau.


Thank you to my friend Coco for translating those words. I posted the poem once before for another friend who recently lost her father.

Beyond and Before

Far into the future is a moment we cannot see
Beyond is a vastness we cannot know
Before is the life we must live

Intertwined are the beyond and before
Like a sunset blends with horizon's wave
Different as night from day
Yet without the one is the other pointless

All that begins shall soon end
And in ending begin afresh
