I think that life would suddenly seem wonderful to us if we were threaten to die.
Just think of how many projects travel, love affairs, studies bits.
Our life hides from us, made invisible by our laziness
Which certainty of a future delays them incessantly,
But let all this threaten to be become impossible forever
How beautiful it would become again.
Ahh if only the cataclysm doesn’t happen this time
We won’t miss visiting the new galleries of the Louvre
Throwing ourselves at the feet of Mr x
Or making a trip to India.
The cataclysm doesn’t happen we don’t do any of it
Because we find ourselves back in the heart of normal life
When negligence deadens desire
And yet we shouldn’t have needed the cataclysm
To love life today it would have been enough to think
That we are humans and that death may come this evening
