I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

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.

— Pablo Neruda

Listen Loretta, this ain’t no Disney movie with lightning bugs drawing hearts on hot August nights and frogs lining up on logs to sing lullabies of love in your ears. You ain’t no princess and I’m sure the hell no prince. This is life – real life! We’ll work hard all day, we’ll fight, we’ll argue. But under it all we’ll love. Not for one or two hours of animation, but twenty-four hours of real 3D honest-to-goodness life. I can’t say what’s coming up in the script, no one can, but I promise I’ll be there with you even when the credits roll and the last frame comes up saying “THE END”. Be my leading Lady. Marry me Loretta.
