It remains only, and a solitude so immense, in spite of the good fortune of having children and grandchildren. The room from the bed. Sleeping alone is difficult, there is always an eye that goes above and beyond in a vacuum. The night wake up, turn around and go to do a caress to those who are not there anymore.
