I love this poem. It´s from a poet José A. Goytisolo.
The original it´s in spanish, but i try to do my best to translate it.
It help me so much, so many times, and i want to give to Amy with all my heart.

I wish she could read it sometime...

Words to Julia

You can´t back time,
because life already pushes you
as an endless howl.

My daughter,
is better to live with the happiness of the men,
that to cry before the blind wall.

You will feel cornered,
will feel loss or alone,
perhaps will want not to have born.

I know very well that tey will tell you
that life does not have object,
that is an unfortunate matter.

Then always remember
of what a day i wrote
thinking about you as now I think.

A man only, a woman,
taken one by one,
they are like dust, ther are nothing.

But when I speak to you,
when I write these words for you,
I think also in other mens.

Your destiny is in the others,
your future is your own life,
your dignity is all mens dignity.

Others expect that you resist,
that your happiness help them,
your song among its songs.

Then always remember
of what a day I wrote
thinking about you as now I think.

Never deliver you
neither set apart you next to the road,
never say i can´t and here I remain.

Life is beautiful, you will see
as in spite of the sorrows,
you will have love, you will have friends.

Otherwise there is not election,
and this world just as it is
will be all your patrimony.

You forgive me,
I don´t know to tell you nothing more,
but you understand
that I´m still on the road.

And always, always, you remember
of what a day I wrote
thinking about you as now I think.

Love you Amy.
And we all here just want to you be happy.
