                            I Like For You To Be Still

              by Pablo Neruda

           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 way
           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

  I LOOOVE LOOOOOOVE THIS POEM!! ♥ ♥ ♥ Well, the original version of it, I wasn't familiarised with the English one :)

 

  "Me gusta cuando callas

   porque estás como ausente

   y me oyes desde lejos

  y mi voz no te toca ..... "

 

  ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!!! 

  We had poetry contests in my school every year, and a lot of people chose this poem to recite it ^^

 

 I'm so glad you like it too!!
