Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines

Rating: 4.2
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.

Write, for example,'The night is shattered
and the blue stars shiver in the distance.'

The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

Through nights like this one I held her in my arms
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.

She loved me sometimes, and I loved her too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.

To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.

What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
The night is shattered and she is not with me.

This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

My sight searches for her as though to go to her.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.

The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.

I no longer love her, that's certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.

Another's. She will be another's. Like my kisses before.
Her voide. Her bright body. Her inifinite eyes.

I no longer love her, that's certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.

Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my sould is not satisfied that it has lost her.

Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
and these the last verses that I write for her.

This will always be one of my favorite poems. We always think that once we have stopped our relationship with our partner that it means we don't love them anymore, but isn't there always that little piece of us that remembers...

Hello 22 April 2020
The poem is good, but your site has spelling errors. Her VOIDE (instead of voice) . Her bright body. Her INIFINITE (instead of infinite) eyes. Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms my SOULD (instead of soul) is not satisfied that it has lost her. Please correct your errors...

If he no longer loves her he should stop redirecting her page to love poems by Pablo Neruda...Pablo....jeez. Either or get off the toilet paper, there's a shortage.
