Nothing More ... by Neruda

I made my contract with the truth
to restore light to the earth.

I wished to be like bread.
The struggle never found me wanting.

But here I am with what I loved,
with the solitude I lost.
In the shadow of the stone, I do not rest.

The sea is working, working in my silence.

- Pablo Neruda (1904-1973)
