If You Forget Me - Pablo Neruda
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
look baby when you borrow my heart i hope you borrow it forever, because i don't wish to face the sorrow. i promise i will be with you for today and for tomorrow. Never will i ever...
Now that you are here
I have nothing to fear
With you is where I belong
I know it, I feel it so strong
Nothing has been more clear
That it is your love I hold so dear
When I have fears That I May Cease to Be
When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,
Before high-piled books, in charactery,
There are memories written in the snow in strange monograms that nobody knows
There´s a Sun that I once engraved with my finger into the muddy road
We both walked
by Sara Teasdale |
I Am Not Yours
I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me...
Watching you from across the room
sends searing pain through my heart.
I think back to a year ago,
when I thought we’d never part.
My love for you just won’t die down –
