You will remember Love

You will remember

Pablo Neruda


Because of you, in gardens of blossoming flowers I ache from
the perfumes of spring.

I have forgotten your face, I no longer remember your hands; how did your lips
feel on mine?

Because of you, I love the white statues drowsing in the parks, the white
statues that have neither voice nor sight.

I have forgotten your voice, your happy voice; I have forgotten your eyes.

Like a flower to its perfume, I am bound to my vague memory of you. I live with
pain that is like a wound; if you touch me, you will do me irreparable harm.

Your caresses enfold me, like climbing vines on melancholy walls.

I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to glimpse you in every window.

Because of you, the heady perfumes of summer pain me; because of you, I again
seek out the signs that precipitate desires: shooting stars, falling objects.
