Patch Adam’s Poem

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way
because I don’t know any other way of loving
but this, in which there is no I nor you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep
it is your eyes that close.


Pernah nonton Patch Adam? sebuah film yang bagus terutama untuk yang berkecimpung di dunia kesehatan, yg menekankan bahwa, pekerjaan tenaga kesehatan bukanlah menunda kematian, tapi meningkatkan kualitas hidup pasien.. Nah puisi di atas yang sooo sweeett bgt itu dibacakan Adam kepada kekasihnya,, I love the poem so much,, so I share it here…
