    Original Spanish...


    SI TÚ ME OLVIDAS

    Quiero que sepas
    una cosa.

    Tú sabes cómo es esto:
    si miro
    la luna de cristal, la rama roja
    del lento otoño en mi ventana,
    si toco
    junto al fuego
    la impalpable ceniza
    o el arrugado cuerpo de la leña,
    todo me lleva a ti,
    como si todo lo que existe,
    aromas, luz, metales,
    fueran pequeños barcos que navegan
    hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan.

    Ahora bien,
    si poco a poco dejas de quererme
    dejaré de quererte poco a poco.

    Si de pronto
    me olvidas
    no me busques,
    que ya te habré olvidado.

    Si consideras largo y loco
    el viento de banderas
    que pasa por mi vida
    y te decides
    a dejarme a la orilla
    del corazón en que tengo raíces,
    piensa
    que en ese día,
    a esa hora
    levantaré los brazos
    y saldrán mis raíces
    a buscar otra tierra.

    Pero
    si cada día,
    cada hora
    sientes que a mí estás destinada
    con dulzura implacable.
    Si cada día sube
    una flor a tus labios a buscarme,
    ay amor mío, ay mía,
    en mí todo ese fuego se repite,
    en mí nada se apaga ni se olvida,
    mi amor se nutre de tu amor, amada,
    y mientras vivas estará en tus brazos
    sin salir de los míos. (Report) Reply

    Subtle, and masterful. Only Pablo Neruda could weave such a tapestry of longing and desire with his endearing words. (Report) Reply

    the imagery is so descriptive as well as cryptive..lol.
    the poem, the poet makes you sail one of those boats that lead to his sensitively woven tale of simple love.
