Words taken from Sonnet Lxxxi, by Pablo Neruda

And now you’re mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are beside me as a sleeping amber.

No-one else, love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
We will go together, over the waters of time.
No-one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their sofft drifting signs drop away; your eyes are closed like two gray
wings, and I move

after, following the folding water you carry, that carries
me away. The night, the world, the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.

For Will and Jenny, on their wedding day: Saturday, the 17th of October, 2015
