I Wished I Could Have Met Pablo

The great poet Pablo Neruda who inspired me to be a poet.  Who taught me how to express love from my heart, my soul.

I Wished I Could Have Met Pablo

My friend how I could have
Would have touched your tired hand
To say: ‘Hola, mi amigo’
How is the seaside?
Is the unrelenting tide keeping you strong?
The salty air feeding your soul?
With the bread of life?
Is the kisses of your loved one
Blending each day with love?
Then observe how his mouth
Forms the words he composed
Mined from depths of a soul
I treasure because he chose
To be a poet
