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
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land”
You can’t go back!! No use wishing ‘I had done that then’ or ‘not done it’. No point living in your past, when the present is shining bright. No point getting frustrated with the past and ruining the present. Tell yourself it is over and you are done with it. Move on!! Just like nothing stops the earth from rotating, just like nothing stops the wind from blowing, just like the evening fades to night, don’t let yourself stop. Allow these memories to fade away. Let go of your past and embrace your present. Cheers!!
PS: Pablo Neruda is one of my favourite poets. Those of you who have not read his work, please read him..
