Audrey Hepburn’s favorite poem by Tagore…

Unending Love… by Rabindranath Tagore

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

springtime is supposed to be the most beautiful season – the one of resurrection and rebirth, the miracle of life… 🙂

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

  3. So wonderful and deeply beautiful, my friend!

  4. This poem, and the fact that it was the favorite poem of one of my favorite actresses, prompts me to pass along this Audrey Hepburn quote: “The best thing to hold unto in life is each other.”

  5. Thanks for the wonderful words and hints of spring.

  6. Beautiful, Melanie, the sentiment of eternal love that renews each Spring.
