NFPF: Nailah's Favorite Poem Friday


If You Forget Me 
By 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 
near the fire 
the impalpable ash 
or the wrinkled body of the log, 
everything carries me to you, 
as if everything that exists, 
aromas, light, metals, 
were little boats 
that sail 
toward those isles of yours that wait for me. 


Well, now, 
if little by little you stop loving me 
I shall stop loving you little by little. 

If suddenly 
you forget me 
do not look for me, 
for I shall already have forgotten you. 



If you think it long and mad, 
the wind of banners 
that passes through my life, 
and you decide 
to leave me at the shore 
of the heart where I have roots, 
remember 
that on that day, 
at that hour, 
I shall lift my arms 
and my roots will set off 
to seek another land. 

But 
if each day, 
each hour, 
you feel that you are destined for me 
with implacable sweetness, 
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, 
my love feeds on your love, beloved, 
and as long as you live it will be in your arms 
without leaving mine. 

By Pablo Neruda 


I have become a fan Mr. Neruda. Progressively, his poetry has a benevolent affect on me. 

Next Week I will be posting Updates for other blogs, so stay tuned.
Have a wonderful weekend
