    I wrote this poem on the night before I would leave our adopted country. The last night I would ever have a woman looking forward to seeing me.


    te quiero. Pero sera una dia en la futura.

    Porque voy ahorra, y dices que quieri decir.

    Nande? Ima? porque no en Augusto o Septiembre?

    Anata ga hoshi desu. Solamente quiero una dia completa.

    You give me your picture and say I should never forget you.

    You say you want my picture and you will never forget me.

    Demo, estuve tu' quieri, no una pictura.

    We speak in 3 languages. When we drink we say; "Salud, Kampai, Cheers!" But I only got to say "hello."

    Always and never this is my life. I see the extremes and you are there. I needed to realize it is now and not never. That there is no whole. That what is, is all.

    I think I will see you in 3 hours. I think I will see you forever. My Colombian woman. Watashi no Colombiajin Onnanahito, mi colombiana.
