I watch you sleep. I’m with you, by your bedside.
You’re wearing a long black tunic and red embroidery on the bodice. These are flowers, I think, but I do not look at them.
I will say goodbye, the longest farewell, my Puppelé. That’s how I called you. It means “little doll” in German.
I do not watch the flowers, but your face and I think you’re beautiful, and never, perhaps you have been so beautiful.
Alain Delon, 29 may 1982
