"...j'at longtemps appelé la bonne visiteurse,
la soeur de déliverance,
celle qui n'est venu m'emporter dans sa paix.
Et mainenant je rêve, au palais de la gène,
d'une vast nuit pleine,
d'un grand silence entier pour y nover ma peine.

From: Chansons du mal de tete, 1942.

I have long waited for that guest,
the good sister of deliverance,
the one who has not come
to take me to her rest.
And now, in this barren house, I dream
of a vast and eternal night,
a silence huge and deep enough
to drown my pain.
