I want to live
Till the sunset of my time.
And I want to give
All the beauty that is mine.

The days that assault me
And the years of pain awaiting me
Fill me with anger and with tears.
But I know just where I must go.

For I want to wander
Through the landscapes of my life,
And I want to love
As a mother and a wife.

The illness that torments me
And the love of those around me
Join to make hope my refrain
And courage my song.
