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.

I 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.

by Pablo Neruda

Love if openly not declared it does not mean that there is no love in mind. Love has great power within mind and this gives nice pleasing feelings to others. Love is expressed through attitude and vision. From cold to fire, mind moves with love. A great perception of love is declared nicely through this poem. An outstanding poem is nicely penned. We love to read such outstanding poem.
