Es tan poco // It’s so little (by Mario Benedetti)

Lo que conoces
es tan poco
lo que conoces
de mí
lo que conoces
son mis nubes
son mis silencios
son mis gestos
lo que conoces
es la tristeza
de mi casa vista de afuera
son los postigos de mi tristeza
el llamador de mi tristeza

Pero no sabes
nada
a lo sumo
piensas a veces
que es tan poco
lo que conozco
de ti
lo que conozco
o sea tus nubes
o tus silencios
o tus gestos
lo que conozco
es la tristeza
de tu casa vista de afuera
son los postigos de tu tristeza
el llamador de tu tristeza

Pero no llamas
Pero no llamo.

What you know
it’s so little
what you know
of me
what you know
are my clouds
is my quietness
are my gestures
what you know
is the sadness
of my house seen from outside
are the shutters of my sadness
is the foyer of my sadness

But you know
nothing
at most
sometimes you think
that it’s so little
what I know
of you
what I know
are your clouds
is your quietness
are your gestures
what I know
is the sadness
of your house seen from outside
are the shutters of your sadness
is the foyer of your sadness

But you don’t call
But I don’t call.
