    Is it possible that the 'I' in this poem is Love itself?

    The last stanza especially.
    I'm not sure that i agree with the message. Love surely isn't that simple.
    But beautiful non the less,

    That was so beautiful. I think if someone can forget you than they dont deserve you hanging on, i wish it was that easy

    My favorite poem of all time. I love the beautiful words and the deep meaning. I think many people don't really understand the poem and I've posted comments before that provoked some interesting responses, so I'll try to make my point again in a different way... By summarizing this beautiful poem:
    1. I love you so much.
    2. If you stop loving me or get bored with me and move on, then I'll so the same.
    3. But if you still love me 5,10,20 or 50 years from now, then I'll still love you too and that would be a really cool thing.

    Isn't that type of love alot cooler than 'I'll love you forever, even if you leave me, stop loving me or get bored with me'?

    My god that was a beautiful poem, I have tears in my eyes.

    This is beautifully written. It tugged at my stomach the whole way through. I can't relate, being the hopeless romantic that I am, but I can definitely look toward this as a model of what I should strive for. Definitely deserving of a spot in the top 10.

    If you love reading Neruda's poetry; you must experience his love poems read by different actors and actresses to the music of Il Postino. I had a tape and wore it out! now looking for a CD to take its place...a must for lovers of Pablo Neruda.
