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

    I know that feeling and tried to capture something of a similar craving in my poems 'So Many Times' and 'When I Wake Up Every Morning'. (Report) Reply

    How powerful this is, I was unable to breath when I fininshed and have to keep reading it. To have loved passionately is to understand this poem. (Report) Reply

    This poem expresses the feeling of yearning so well! It brings a lump into my throat everytime I read it. (Report) Reply

    It's been a while since I have missed and longed for a special girl like Pablo is describing here, but I definitely remember the feeling. Pablo is so good at describing emotions in ways that make you experience it yourself again...

    this is such a sweet experssion of and aching pain of love of attachment. Really depicts the horrid feeling of the 'if' factor.

    Makes me wonder, can people really feel deeply for someone? Can someone really make you feel this deeply? (Report) Reply

    Neruda made is ok to be sad of a love lost.. (Report) Reply

    Lovesick doesn't even begin to cover the feeling of yearning depicted in this poem... powerful stuff. (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Ruby Root (7/14/2006 12:53:00 AM)

    This was very emotional right and a cry for despair. It was really sad. What an expressive writer and talented. (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Ray Chen (5/23/2005 8:02:00 PM)

    I believe this poem is incorrectly labeled. The poem listed above (Don't go far off...) is actually Sonnet XLV from Neruda's One Hundred Love Sonnets (Cien Sonetos de Amor) . 'I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair' is a separate poem called Sonnet XI from his One Hundred Love Sonnets. I think the page should be titled 'Sonnet XLV' or 'Don't Go Far Off, Not Even for a Day.' (Report) Reply
