Death will stare at me with your eyes

Verrà la morte e avrà i tuoi occhi

[Death will come and will have your eyes]

Cesare Pavese – 1950

.

For each of us death has a face; for me it will be Ari’s face –

Beyond everything, she is still looking at me. All the time –

So, I know that when death comes, it will have her eyes –

Will smile to me with her lips and cheeks –

Will embrace me with her arms –

And I am gladly waiting –

Day after day.
