  • LEIGH + STEPHEN = THE WILSONS

    XXVI (I do not love you…)

    By Pablo Neruda

    I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,

    or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.

    I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,

    in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

    I love you as the plant that never blooms

    but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;

    thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,

    risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

    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.

    Leigh and Stephen….you two are a magical couple. Thank you so much for letting me in on this day. It was honest and absolutely beautiful. Blessings to you both. Enjoy forever together. <3
