I was watching my all time favorite movie “Only You” for the 1000th time tonight and just feeling so tragically romantic. Just wanted to share a poem that’s featured in the movie, also my favorite poem. I’m feeling this one so hard right now dealing with an unrequited love situation…..😢😢 So read and enjoy…..

You Who Never Arrived
Rainer Maria Rilke

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
moment. All the immense
images in me—the far-off, deeply-felt landscape,
cities, towers, and bridges, and un-
suspected 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.
You, Beloved, who are all
the gardens I have ever gazed at,
longing. An open window
in a country house—, and you almost
stepped out, pensive, to meet me. Streets that I chanced upon,—
you had just walked down them and vanished.
And sometimes, in a shop, the mirrors
were still dizzy with your presence and, startled, gave back
my too-sudden image. Who knows?
perhaps the same
bird echoed through both of us
yesterday, separate, in the evening...
