    To My Dear Poet Pablo Neruda on...If You Forget Me!


    How to forget you my dear poet,
    As one of my favourite poem is in air.
    Today, I want to sing openly few lines on love
    Since you are no more to listen to me dear.

    I have not uttered any words of love to anyone.
    For I fear, my fragile heart will be broken and mended very often.

    But I fear you no more, as you have a heart of gold.
    For I felt none so near as I find you closer to my heart.
    Remember, my dear, only for you I have kept my heart open!
    For, I am too poor or may be a fear to write any poems on love.
    So openly, you write poems on love.

    How to forget you my dear poet
    My heart beats, right only for you.
    As you taught me how to write Fantastic poems on love.

    Though the words you poured out from your heart,
    But it had passed like lightening through my heart.
    You have send me a few sparks of love from thy heaven
    Which set my heart on fire.

    Please do come down from heaven to extinguish the fire you have set in!
    How to forget you my dear poet as love is still in air!

    With Love, Your's.................Geetha Jayakumar

    I especially love these lines;

    as if everything that exists,
    aromas, light, metals,
    were little boats
    that sail
    toward those isles of yours that wait for me. (Report) Reply

    reading this, i can surely say, though each poem has it's own essence and beauty, it is the most beauteous love poem ever written, each line was like a magic itself.
    a fantastic read. (Report) Reply

    lovely poem if each day a flower
    climbs up to your lips to seek me,
    ah my love, ah my own,
    in me all that fire is repeated,
    in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, (Report) Reply

    If suddenly
    you forget me
    do not look for me,
    for I shall already have forgotten you.
    Couldn't agree more, Pablo! (Report) Reply

    broken-winged bird
    That cannot fly.
    Hold fast to dreams
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful poem. Incidentally, this poem was e-mailed to me through the Modern Poems function of PoemHunter the day after my girlfriend broke up with me. Oddly, it gave me strength to persevere, and it is now one of my favorite poems. (Report) Reply
