We want to finish this post with one of the poems of one of the most famous poets in our language, Pablo Neruda. From its book “100 Sonetos de Amor” we bring you “Soneto de Amor XVII”

“Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde. Te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo: así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera, Sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres, tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía, tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.”

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;

so I love you because I know no other way than this:

where I does not exist nor you,

so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,

so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”

We hope you enjoy this day with the person you love.
