The window - La ventana

For those behind bars
For the invalid at the hospital
For those who in depression sigh
For those that the moonlight make cry
Only the window is their faithful mate
She opens the light and the hope
For all those who wait



El que tras la rejas está
El enfermo que llega el final
El que en depresión suspira
El que en la noche a la luna mira
Solo la ventana es fiel compañera
abriendo esperanza y luz
para ese que espera

You are absolutely right on here. You are pointing out, without saying, the desolating effect that solitary confinement can have on a prisoner. Or a padded cell for a mentally ill person out of control.
