Le Petit Monsieur Cocosse

Robert Desnos: Letter To Youki (1944)

I have dreamed so strongly of you
I have walked so much, talked so much
So much I have loved your shadow
That there now remains for me nothing more of you,
It remains with me to be a shadow among shadows
To be a hundred times darker than the darkness
To be the shadow that will come and come again into your sun blessed life.
