Hasta siempre

I stayed up late last night, letting Chavela sing to me. And made my peace with her departure, coming up with these words:

Hoy la noche es más negra.
Pero no da miedo.
Una voz de hollín me susurra
y guía mis pasos hacía el campo santo.

¡Mirad, cuántas velas!

Hasta siempre, Chavela.

María Isabel Anita Carmen de Jesús Vargas Lizano
