Il me Restera :- What will remain

Some light will remain
Some water, some wind
Some sweet dreams, and some bitter
And the heartache from time to time
I will still have my memories
Faces and voices and laughters
I will still have the time ticking
And life, the one that makes you die

I will still have all those things that one hoards
Without thinking, without counting, without knowing
When you live intensly you don't have a memory
But it takes photographs unknowingly

Long silences will remain
Long seconds from the past, sadness
There will also be Valence
Here, some tenderness was born
There will remain two or three trinkets
A hair-pin, a forgotten perfume
A record, an old book, unimportant things
that I will never be able to throw away

I will still have all those things that one hoards
Without thinking, without counting, without knowing
When you live intensly you don't have a memory
But it takes photographs unknowingly
