If You Forget Me

Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the
red branch
of the slow autumn at my
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours
that wait for me.
Well, now,
if little by little you stop
loving me
I shall stop loving you little
by little.
If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have
forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are
destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is
extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love,
and as long as you live it will
be in your arms
without leaving mine.
