A Little Christmas Love

JustLavStockingsFor Christmas is always the time of year to be with the ones that we love, to hold them in our hearts and always remind them how important they are to us, I thought the most fitting thing for today would be a love poem by Pablo Neruda.

I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

 

I do not love you except because I love you;

I go from loving to not loving you,

From waiting to not waiting for you

My heart moves from cold to fire.

 

XmasTreeI love you only because it’s you the one I love;

I hate you deeply, and hating you

Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you

Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

 

Maybe January light will consume

My heart with its cruel

Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who

Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,

Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
