    I like this poem because I think most people who are in love feel this way: they want to be in love forever, and want to be able to promise that things will always be beautiful and wonderful, but at the same time don't want to put all that emotion out there just to be forgotten and left behind. So, as, Neruda said in this poem, we say 'if you forget me, I'll forget you first.'

    Neruda has courage to express his full sentiment, but he is not prisoner of it. I believe that is the full intent of this poem, to swim and dance in the greatest feeling one can have, but if the beloved should falter, than the lover need not suffer. Distant lands with ever more verdent fields are always on the horizon. I enjoyed this very much.

    This poem touched me. It is good to see that others share the feelings I have.
