    ''Si tú me olvidas''

    - -

    Quiero que sepas
    una cosa.
    Tú sabes cómo es esto:
    si miro
    la luna de cristal, la rama roja
    del lento otoño en mi ventana,
    si toco
    junto al fuego
    la impalpable ceniza
    o el arrugado cuerpo de la leña,
    todo me lleva a ti,
    como si todo lo que existe,
    aromas, luz, metales,
    fueran pequeños barcos que navegan
    hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan.

    Ahora bien,
    si poco a poco dejas de quererme
    dejaré de quererte poco a poco.
    Si de pronto
    me olvidas
    no me busques,
    que ya te habré olvidado.

    Si consideras largo y loco
    el viento de banderas
    que pasa por mi vida
    y te decides
    a dejarme a la orilla
    del corazón en que tengo raíces,
    piensa
    que en ese día,
    a esa hora
    levantaré los brazos
    y saldrán mis raíces
    a buscar otra tierra.

    Pero
    si cada día,
    cada hora
    sientes que a mí estás destinada
    con dulzura implacable.
    Si cada día sube
    una flor a tus labios a buscarme,
    ay amor mío, ay mía,
    en mí todo ese fuego se repite,
    en mí nada se apaga ni se olvida,
    mi amor se nutre de tu amor, amada,
    y mientras vivas estará en tus brazos
    sin salir de los míos. (Report) Reply

    ''Se tu mi dimentichi''


    Voglio che tu sappia
    Una cosa.
    Tu sai com'è questa cosa:
    se guardo
    la luna di cristallo, il ramo rosso
    del lento autunno alla mia finestra,
    se tocco
    vicino al fuoco
    l'impalpabile cenere
    o il rugoso corpo della legna,
    tutto mi conduce a te,
    come se ciò che esiste
    aromi, luce, metalli,
    fossero piccole navi che vanno
    verso le tue isole che m'attendono.

    Orbene,
    se a poco a poco cessi di amarmi
    cesserò d'amarti poco a poco.
    Se d'improvviso
    mi dimentichi,
    non cercarmi,
    chè già ti avrò dimenticata

    Se consideri lungo e pazzo
    il vento di bandiere
    Che passa per la mia vita
    e ti decidi
    a lasciarmi sulla riva
    del cuore in cui ho le radici,
    pensa
    che in quel giorno,
    in quell'ora,
    leverò in alto le braccia
    e le mie radici usciranno
    a cercare altra terra.

    Ma
    se ogni giorno,
    ogni ora
    senti che a me sei destinata
    con dolcezza implacabile.
    Se ogni giorno sale
    alle tue labbra un fiore a cercarmi,
    ahi, amor mio, ahi mia,
    in me tutto quel fuoco si ripete,
    in me nulla si spegne né si dimentica,
    il mio amore si nutre del tuo amore, amata,
    e finchè tu vivrai starà tra le tue braccia
    senza uscire dalle mie. (Report) Reply

    We always want our love to be returned with the same intensity. I think this poem reflects this. (Report) Reply
