This is the only life I knows

This is the only life I know,
I know life in what I perceive,
Not what they perceive,
I seen all it's ups and downs,
All its negligence and misconception,
I've seen it's consciousness and it's judgement,

This is the only life I know,
That we all cry someday,
Maybe we'll forget it and it comes again,

This is the only life I know,
That there will be judgement,
There will be wars and peace,
There will be success and failure,
This life is the only life I know,

That we all love,
Sometimes we hate,
But nothing lasts forever,
That we all die someday,
And say this is the only life we all knew.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
