If only your memory
of me were this blue May
sky, completely filled with
the pure stars of my acts!
If my acts were identical, like them: all pure,
clear, good, tranquil, just like the stars!
Below, I see your smile in dreams
–dreams of your memories of my life!–

Lost for words.
Hope in a good way.
Of Course, always.
I’d reblog this one but forgot how to do that. Jimenez … wish I could find my copy of his collected works but forgot where that is too. BUT I’m not a half bad speller. Mostly that on instinct not memory.
He’s one of the greats.
