And Spring came the day after tomorrow,
I would die peacefully, because it came the day after tomorrow.

And I like that it would be like this even if I didn’t like it.
And so, if I die now, I die peacefully
Because everything is real and everything is right.”
― Alberto Caeiro

And dry my dreaming but still…
