Qu'elle Soit Elle :- May she be herself

May she also like her worries
That's a quality that I have
Without any false modesty
One that I would like her to have

May she be similar to me in loneliness
May she learn it little by little
The others will be her study *
May she be lonely so that she loves better

We would like them to be be just like us
We would like them to be another ourselves
That it still goes on when we turn the page
May she be herself
And the best she can

* - [We think this means "May she study herself" but ... maybe JJG drank well this night!!]
