A Poem by Neruda

My friend (Sam) once pointed me to this poem by Pablo Neruda.
I can't resist putting it on my blog. Simple words.
But the last two lines are one that make the difference,
not the first two or any in the middle. Ain't it ?
Tonight I can write the saddest lines

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.

Write, for example,'The night is shattered
and the blue stars shiver in the distance.'

The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

Through nights like this one I held her in my arms
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.

She loved me sometimes, and I loved her too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.

To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.

What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
The night is shattered and she is not with me.

This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

My sight searches for her as though to go to her.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.

The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.

I no longer love her, that's certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.

Another's. She will be another's. Like my kisses before.
Her voide. Her bright body. Her inifinite eyes.

I no longer love her, that's certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.

Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my sould is not satisfied that it has lost her.

Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
and these the last verses that I write for her.

Pablo Neruda

How often do you see the sky without a cloud ?
How often you feel that your words are too loud ?

Is there a feeling, words can never say out ?
Is there a pure heart, having no single doubt ?

Numb & Dumb

Just watched Lucky Number Slevin (Bruce Willice, Morgan Freeman).
Cool stuff, not recommended for people nostalgic about violence.
Next weekend, da vinci code.
And then again the (un)lucky number. 666 ... returning.
The Omen, releasing on 6/6/6. How can I watch it on any other day ?

btw: (may be feeling sympathetic, or guilty for not coming with me for last several movies), ppl
committed to me much earlier that they will come to see 'da vinci code' on 19th. i was
surprised! and for the 6/6/6, i'm possesed. nomatter what, i will watch it on 6/6/6,
even if none of you join me, or even if i m the only person in the hall.

They're coming, right here, as fast as an arrow.
And they give you no time, to trust on tomorrow.

I wish I could stop them all, right there, in my head.
As, once you let them in, tomorrow is no far from dead.

Hap and happiness

I was always assuming that the word "happiness" in English, means the following:
(In CancerWEB's Online Medical Dictionary :)

Going on

Laughing, crying, slipping and falling.
Losing, missing, faking and lying.
Neither to complain nor to look down.
The life is valiant to go on and on.

The falling sky

lightenings and thunders
don't mean that the sky
was mad at you for long
and now making you cry.

it is the nature which falls
and your nature must be true
not to run away from the sky
as it will never fall on you
