Lo escribo ahora así. Cumplida la agonía
quiero morir del todo. Las vagas formas amarillas
que apenas entreveo, el ilusorio día,
la vida atroz, la incesante pesadilla,
la rutina porfiada, la prescindible historia,
se alejan lentamente. El tiempo establecido
ya se agota. Aguardo ante el ocaso que el olvido
me depare un sueño sin memoria.
Quimérico, secreto, espectral camino,
sus ilusorias leyes inventan un destino
que aunque soñado, quiere ser el mío.
Ya vence el plazo prefijado. De este encierro
la firme puerta es de cansado hierro.
Por eso espero. Se detendrán las aguas de mi río.

 
LA ESPERA
Jorge Luis Borges
1969

I write now as well. Fulfilled the agony
I want to die at all. The vague yellow forms 
barely I glimpse, the illusory day,
the atrocious life, the ceaseless nightmare,
the stubborn routine, the expendable history,
are moving away slowly. The established time
is already exhausted. I await at the sunset, that oblivion
holds for me a dream without memory.
Chimeric, secret, spectral way,
its illusory laws invent a destiny
that even dreamed, wants to be mine.
Now is the predetermined deadline. From this confinement
the strong iron door is tired.
Is why I hope. Will stop the waters of my river.

 
THE WAIT
Jorge Luis Borges
1969
