All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -

Know that you aren't alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

Her poetry is very romantic and her use of imagery and figurative language is wonderful.
This is my favourite from Sonnets from the Portuguese..One of the most beautiful love declaration ever written by a poet.
Beautiful True love, depth, passion Touching
An unconditional declaration of love
By far a love masterpiece of all Times and for all Times. Time cannot wither this immortal poem
