Pablo Neruda #8: 20 Love Poems

Every day for the next 20 days leading to Valentine's Day, I will be sharing bits of Pablo Neruda's TWENTY LOVE POEMS (VEINTE POEMAS DE AMOR).

Here's the 8th counting down to the celebration of ♥...

XV. I LIKE FOR YOU TO BE STILL

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.

Como todas las cosas están llenas de mi alma
emerges de las cosas, llena del alma miá.
Mariposa de sueño, te pareces a mi alma,
y te pareces a la palabra melancolía.
