    If suddenly
    you forget me
    do not look for me,
    for I shall already have forgotten you. (Report) Reply

    Pablo is telling us not to take a lover for granted. I could be a fool in love but when you let it show that you do not love me, there and then I shall become wise. The bottom line is, what we get from a lover is what we give to a lover. (Report) Reply

    A man can love ones in real.It may not be his first love but it can not be forgotten. The experience is the thing, not the person. The lover remembers it all the time but the activists may have gone and forgotten but the nostalgia is eternally tormenting. Dear Sir, you have gone before our time or our matuarity. I am sad that I can not ask this from you! ! ! (Report) Reply

    It is about his relationship with his country of Chile. But it can be about all relationships. In love with love, I think not, but more about valuing oneself and realizing that a healthy loving relationship should have reciprocity. He does not want to hang on to and burden himself with something that is dead. (Report) Reply

    Well, now,
    if little by little you stop loving me
    I shall stop loving me little by little.

    If suddenly
    you forget me
    do not look for me,
    for I shall already have forgotten myself. (Report) Reply

    It sounds like the character is inlove with the idea of someone loving him, rather than unconditional love that will be unchanged no matter what events that follow. Being inlove with love itself.
    Beautiful poem, I enjoyed it very much. (Report) Reply

    I believe that the character believes in love that flows. Like a lake, when love only receives, it starts to die. Algae covers the surface and the water teems with bacteria. When love only gives, the lake starts to dry. Little by little, there is nothing left but mud. An inhabitable mud. But when love begins to flow, when it gives as well as receives, fish come and go, algae is eaten by the fish, animals come to drink by its shores, and the it becomes beautiful. I think that the character is trying to convey that love shouldn't be something that is only given, and it shouldn't be only received either.
