Don’t come, death, not yet, / I still have to weave the long ladder / that has to get there where I wish; / I still have to accomplish my dharma, / to do, to do the things I have do here. // Because I have a debt, / I have a debt to myself. / I came for something more than to pass by like a shadow. / There is a light inside me that wants get out. / Don't come yet, give time to my time.
