I love you without knowing how
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how,
or from where.
I love you straightforwardly,
without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.~
~ Pablo Neruda
After so much time has passed, I still love you ever so deeply and profoundly.
My love for you will never fade away, my beloved.
You are me and I am you.
Two star crossed lovers, united in the realms of heaven.
United and no longer divided.
We are one.
