What's your favorite love/romantic poetry/sonnets/etc. A piece of writing that you would like to dedicate to your loved ones or your significant other. Or it can be poem which you feel speaks the true meaning of love. It can be a poem that simply moved you to tears or has touched your feelings. Here's my favorite.. "I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: I love you as certain things are loved, secretly between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom and carries hidden within itself the light of those flowers, and thanks to your love, darkly in my body lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth. I love 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 other ways of loving. but this in which there is no I or 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." PABLO NERUDA, SONNET XVII
