    When the storm passes
    and the roads are tamed,
    and we are survivors
    of a collective shipwreck.

    With a weeping heart
    and destiny blessed
    we will feel happy
    just for being alive.

    And we will give a hug
    to the first unknown
    and praise the luck
    of keeping a friend.

    And then We will remember
    everything we lost
    at once we will learn
    everything we did not learn.

    And we will not be envious
    because everyone will have suffered. more compassionate.

    What is worth more will be more Yes,
    than ever before.
    We will be more generous,
    and much more committed.

    We will understand how fragile
    it means to be alive.
    We will sweat empathy
    for who is and who has left.

    We will miss the old man
    who was asking for a peso in the market,
    who did not know his name
    and was always by your side.

    And perhaps the poor old man
    was your God in disguise.
    You never asked for the name
    because you were in a hurry.

    And everything will be a miracle
    and everything will be a legacy.
    And life will be respected,
    the life we ​​have won.
