“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot an the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
—Charles Dickens

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,

without leaving mine.

from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
