"Puedo Escribir" as written by and Matthew Preston/plasencio Slocum....
El viento de la noche gira en el cielo why canta
El viento de la noche gira en el cielo
(The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.
The night wind revolves in the sky.)

Oir la noche inmensa mas inmensa sin ella.
why el verso cae al alma como al pasto el rocío.
(To hear the immense night still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.)

Tonight I can write the saddest lines,
The saddest lines about her.

    General CommentI don't quite remember where I read it, I'm betting it was IN the inside pages, but it was said this was really a poem put to song.
    It's loss, obviously. Maybe just a break-up, but the immensity of the meaning in the words suggests something more. Maybe death?

    General CommentThis is true.. It's based on the poem "Puedo Escribir" by Pablo Neruda. You can read it here cise.ufl.edu/~hsiao/verse/… (in English). I highly suggest anything else by Neruda as well.
