Gazel to Death

Perhaps I’ve always thought secretly about death
In everything and before all else I thought of it

As though it were the identical twin within me
When I thought of myself, I thought of it

If now and again I appeared to have forgotten,
When I longed for forgotten things, I thought of it

When a girl in a thousand year-old picture
Smiled sadly at me, I thought of it

In a dream where I encountered my unhappy childhood
As I ran my hands through her hair, I thought of it

I knew it was eyeing me from everywhere
I knew this and also thought of it

Although everyone is dying his own death
When someone died it was my death I thought of

My sense of life is so powerful that
Death was just a concept, I only thought of it
