I crave your mouth your voice your hair

Written by: Pablo Neruda | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 Don't go far off, not even for a day
Don't go far off, not even for a day, 
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 when the trains are 
Parked off somewhere else, asleep. 

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because then 
The little drops of anguish will all run together, 
The smoke that roams looking for a home will drift 
Into me, choking my lost heart. 

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve
On the beach, may your eyelids never flutter
Into the empty distance. Don't LEAVE me for 
A second, my dearest, because in that moment you'll 
Have gone so far I'll wander mazily 
Over all the earth, asking, will you 
Come back? Will you leave me here, dying?
