Always

I am not jealous
of what came before me.

Come with a man
on your shoulders,
come with a hundred men in your hair,
come with a thousand men between your breasts and your feet,
come like a river
full of drowned men
which flows down to the wild sea,
to the eternal surf, to Time!

Bring them all
to where I am waiting for you;
we shall always be alone,
we shall always be you and I
alone on earth,
to start our life!

    How a man’s true love looks at infidelity of his beloved. How tolerant it is. How delicious a poem. I have seen this is real life.

    SPANISH TEXT:

    ''Siempre''

    Aunque los pasos toquen mil años este sitio,
    no borrarán la sangre de los que aquí cayeron.

    Y no se extinguirá la hora en que caísteis,
    aunque miles de voces crucen este silencio.
    La lluvia empapará las piedras de la plaza,
    pero no apagará vuestros nombres de fuego.

    Mil noches caerán con sus alas oscuras,
    sin destruir el día que esperan estos muertos.

    El día que esperamos a lo largo del mundo
    tantos hombres, el día final del sufrimiento.

    Un día de justicia conquistada en la lucha,
    y vosotros, hermanos caídos, en silencio,
    estaréis con nosotros en ese vasto día
    de la lucha final, en ese día inmenso.

    What a wonderful poet. If people knew how his simplicity accesses the profound, no one would ever want to believe or buy a greeting card again- much less live their lives like one.

    These words are truly touching. This poem speaks to me, for so many reasons. I love Pablo Neruda. He was an amazing poet. One of the best. So romantic, Imagine what it is like to be loved by a man that can give these words.
