You Would Come by Pablo Neruda

You have not made me suffer,
Merely wait.
Those tangled
Hours, filled
With serpents,
My heart stopped and I stifled,
You would come along,
You would come naked and scratched,
Bleeding you would reach my bed,
My bride
And then
All night we walked
And when we woke up
You were intact and new,
As if the dark wind of dreams
Had newly given
Fire to your tresses
And in wheat and silver had submerged
Your body and left it dazzling
I did not suffer, my love,
I was only waiting for you.
You had to change heart
And vision
After having touched the deep
Sea zone that my breast gave to you
You had to leave the water
Pure as a drop raised
By a night wave.
My bride, you had
To die and be born, I was waiting for you.
I did not suffer looking for you,
I knew that you would come,
A new woman with what I adore
Out of the one that I did not adore,
With your eyes, your hands, and your mouth,
But with another heart,
Who was beside me at dawn
As if she had always been there
To go on with me forever.
