Pablo Neruda

(12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973 / Parral / Chile)

Don't Go Far Off


Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station

    Don't leave me for the fraction of a second
    That moment i may stop breathing and have my end
    I love to live in the comfort of your strong will
    Until the day when i am carried to my grave to be still. (Report) Reply

    Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach; may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
    I could never read these words and not be touched by the desolation felt..... only a true soul could place these words with such meaning...beautiful.... (Report) Reply

Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
