Happy Friday, my loves 💜🖤💜
How was your week? Mine went by excruciatingly slow. But, we finally made it, and now we can kick back and relax. Before I post my favorite poem of the week, I wanted to thank you. Thank you for reposting and sharing my work like crazy this week! It really made me quite happy. I felt like I was getting a bit burnt out, but y’all just gave me my second wind. I appreciate you all more than you know!
My favorite poem of the week, this time is “If You Forget Me” by the brilliant poet, Pablo Neruda. He has so many that I absolutely love, but this…this one has my heart. It’s a bit long, so I’ll just post an excerpt here and post it in its entirety in my Instagram stories. Take a look, if you’d like, and let me know if you do. I’d love to know your thoughts.
“But if each day, each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me, all that fire is repeated,
in me, nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live, it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.”
I hope you have a beautiful weekend and don’t forget, never let them take your shine because you shine so damn bright. Take care 💜✌🏽
