If You Forget Me


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 window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
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 roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.


But
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 me,
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, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

No, I gave up on that idea. If they come along, great. But I'm not looking anymore

Yes! He said he'd bring back ice cream when he left.

This is kind of another version of that saying about "... life is what's happening while waiting for your ship to come in." :)
MissFugger · F
Screw it. I don’t care anymore

Nah, I'm not idealistic and I think that sets us up for failure and disappointment. I mean, how many times have we thought someone was the one and it failed.

I'm still looking for the love of my life... So far I have only met liars - lol

Perhaps one day I will find my better half. I have not given up yet.

Found her, was grateful for the 30years I loved her, lost her 5 years ago and still miss her every day.
Maleficent · F
I'll let him find me.
Heartlander · 80-89, M
[@773073,Maleficent] Haaaa ... we have a family saying not investing more than 5 minutes looking for something that's misplaced or apparently lost. If it really wants to be found, it will suddenly one day find us.

It works when looking for people also.
Maleficent · F
[@66493,Heartlander] I gave up looking. When you least expect it it will happen.
