forgives sweet

I Am Not I
{Juan Ramon Jimenez}
I am not I.
I am walking beside me
whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit
and at other times manage to forget.
The one who forgives sweet when I hate,
the one who takes a walk when I am indoors,
the one who remains silent when I talk,
and the one who will remain when I die.


  1. No I have never ever read that ... but I tell you ... it makes absolute sense of internal chaos.  Well, to me it does.

  2. I really enjoyed this one....it does make so much sense in so many ways, it describes the yin and ylang in all of us. (Hugs)Indigo
