I Like For You To Be Still - Poem by Pablo Neruda

Discussion in 'Arts & Literature' started by zegen, Mar 27, 2016.

  1. i like for you to be still
    it is as though you are absent
    And you hear me from far away
    And my voice does not touch you
    it seems as though your eyes had flown away
    And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth
    As all things are filled with my soul
    You emerge from the things
    Filled with my soul
    You are like my soul
    A butterfly of dream
    And you are like the word: Melancholy

    i like for you to be still
    And you seem far away
    it sounds as though you are lamenting
    A butterfly cooing like a dove
    And you hear me from far away
    And my voice does not reach you
    Let me come to be still in your silence
    And let me talk to you with your silence
    That is bright as a lamp
    Simple, as a ring
    You are like the night
    With its stillness and constellations
    Your silence is that of a star
    As remote and candid

    i like for you to be still
    it is as though you are absent
    Distant and full of sorrow
    So you would've died
    One word then, One smile is enough
    And i'm happy;
    Happy that it's not true
