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,

my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
