What were you thinking those last moments? moments you couldn’t know for certain would be your last, moments held in a body that refused to be defined by borders that say:

“conquer, colonize, contain”

but you wouldn’t be – and, I want to ask you so much but all I know is your name

Claudia, from the land of eternal spring
Claudia, from the hope of another world that arrived but is now gone – and how do we get there? how do we meet there? where you are everything we need –

where life isn’t a death sentence but the liberation of the mundane, of the laughter, of the years, of old age, of the love you deserved –

I want to ask you so much but all I know is your name

Claudia from the land of eternal spring
I won’t forget because spring in our hearts is all we have left of you.
