".... My God, give me the courage to live three hundred sixty-five days and nights,
all empty of your presence.
make that loneliness does not destroy me.
Do with my loneliness I serve as a company.
Let me have the courage to face me.
Let me know how to stay with nothing and yet I feel as if you were full of everything.
Get in your arms my sin of thinking ...
And if you find it odd ... respects as well....
even I was obliged to respect me . . ."
