Poem "Final Shadow" by Emilio Prados

Some poetry moves me today. Read about poet Emilio Prados here on Wikipedia

A portion (translated by Donald Wellman) of Emilio Prados' "Final Shadow" - The rest of the poem may be found here.

Night awakens
like a great wall of stone
and time is pushing it
unable to demolish it ...
My body does not rest
from waiting, face to face with night,
faithful tree of truth.
My eyes are now morning stars.
