Neruda, Pablo: I'll come back (Yo Volveré in English)

Portre of Neruda, Pablo

Yo Volveré (Spanish)

Alguna vez, hombre o mujer, viajero,

después, cuando no viva,

aquí buscad, buscadme

entre piedra y océano,

a la luz procelaria

de la espuma.

Aquí buscad, buscadme,

porque aquí volveré sin decir nada,

sin voz, sin boca, puro,

aquí volveré a ser el movimiento

del agua, de

su corazón salvaje,

aquí estaré perdido y encontrado:

aquí seré tal vez piedra y silencio.

I'll come back (English)

O man woman wayfarer,

some day in the future

when I'll be died

look for me here,

look for me between a cliff and ocean

in the storming light of the foam.

Look for me here, look for me

because here I'll come back without a word

voiceless, mouthless, I'll be pure

here I'll be again

running water

of its wild heart,

here I'll stay lost and found again:

perhaps rock and silence.
