Treasure Island

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

    dont leave me for a day.. for a minute.. for a second... only someone who knows love can write this.. there r many who would love to say this but couldnt.. couldnt stop those who have made up their mind to go.. but i think pablo neruda gives words to their anguish.. (Report) Reply

    Such a beautiful poem! ! The author's plea to his heart's lover
    Don't leave me for a second, my dearest, becomes a song of adoration! !
    An awesome author! ! (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

    Oh Pablo, you move me brother, only the ones who have really
    Experienced loss and pain in love can understand, sometimes it feels like a curse but my friend as you know to feel is a blessing, thank you (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
