Don'T Go Far Off - Poem by Pablo Neruda

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station

    Soneto XLV (''No estés lejos de mí un solo día'') - SPANISH TEXT:

    No estés lejos de mì un solo dìa, porque como
    Porque, no sé decirlo, es largo el dìa,

    y te estaré esperando como en las estaciones

    cuando en alguna parte se durnmieron los trenes

    No te vayas por una hora porque entonces

    En esa hora se juntan las gotas del desvelo

    Y tal vez todo el humo que anda buscando casa

    Venga a matar aùn corazòn perdido.

    Ay que no se quebrante tu silueta en la arena,

    ay que no se vuelen tus pàrpados en la ausencia:

    no te vayaspor un minuto, bienamada,

    porque en ese minuto te habràs ido tan lejos

    que vo cruzaré toda la tierra pregustando

    si volveràs o si me dejaras muriendo. (Report) Reply

    ''NON STARE LONTANA'' - ITALIAN TEXT

    Non star lontana da me un solo giorno, perché,

    perché, non so dirlo, è lungo il giorno,

    e ti starò attendendo come nelle stazioni

    quando in qualche parte si addormentano i treni.

    Non andartene per un’ora perché allora

    in quell’ora s’uniscono le gocce dell’insonnia

    e forse tutto il fumo che va cercando casa

    verrà ancora a uccidere il mio cuore perduto.

    Ahi non s’infranga la tua figura nell’arena,

    ahi, non volino le tue palpebre nell’assenza:

    non andartene per un minuto, adorata,

    perché in quel minuto sarai andata sì lungi

    che attraverserò tutta la terra interrogando

    se tornerai o se mi lascerai morire. (Report) Reply

    because in that moment you'll have gone so far
    I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
    Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying? (Report) Reply
