Interior Portrait

Written by: Rainer Maria Rilke | Biography
 | Quotes (35) |
 You don't survive in me
because of memories;
nor are you mine because
of a lovely longing's strength.
What does make you present is the ardent detour that a slow tenderness traces in my blood.
I do not need to see you appear; being born sufficed for me to lose you a little less.
