I Am Not Alone - Poem by Gabriela Mistral

The night, it is deserted
from the mountains to the sea.
But I, the one who rocks you,
I am not alone!

The sky, it is deserted
for the moon falls to the sea.
But I, the one who holds you,
I am not alone !

The world, it is deserted.
All flesh is sad you see.
But I, the one who hugs you,
I am not alone!

    It is indeed an expression of deep love and affection which is in contrast to the dreariness of the world- deserted and forlorn. Great poem. Simple yet adorable, Thanks. (Report) Reply
