"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
So I love you because I know no other way than this:
Where "I" does not exist nor "you",
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close as I fall asleep."
- Pablo Neruda, 'Love Sonnet XVII'
