|The Last Poem of Rizal|
|His friend Mariano Ponce gave it the title of MI ULTIMO ADIOS, as it originally had none Farewell, my adored Land, region of the sun caressed,
Pearl of the Orient Sea, our Eden lost,
With gladness I give you my Life, sad and repressed;
And were it more brilliant, more fresh and at its best,
I would still give it to you for your welfare at most.On the fields of battle, in the fury of fight,
Others give you their lives without pain or hesitancy,
The place does not matter: cypress laurel, lily white,
Scaffold, open field, conflict or martyrdom’s site,
It is the same if asked by home and Country.
I die as I see tints on the sky b’gin to show
My dreams, when scarcely a lad adolescent,
My life’s fancy, my ardent, passionate desire,
If over my tomb some day, you would see blow,
Let the moon with soft, gentle light me descry,
Let the burning sun the raindrops vaporize
Pray thee for all the hapless who have died,
And when the dark night wraps the cemet’ry
And when my grave by all is no more remembered,
Then it doesn’t matter that you should forget me:
My idolized Country, for whom I most gravely pine,
Farewell, parents, brothers, beloved by me,
