Water: You Who Never Arrived

You Who Never Arrived, originally uploaded by lepiaf.geo.

You Who Never Arrived

You who never arrived
in my arms,
Beloved, who were lost
from the start,

I don't even know what songs
would please you.
I have given up trying
to recognize you in the surging wave of the next
All the immense
images in me-- the far-off, deeply-felt landscape,
cities, towers, and bridges, and unsuspected
turns in the path,
and those powerful lands that were once
pulsing with the life of the gods-
all rise within me to mean
you, who forever elude me.
By Rainer Maria Rilke
