your hand on my chest is my hand...intimacy

from 100 Love Sonnets

“I love you without knowing
 how, or when, or from where. 
I love you simply, 
without problems or pride: 
I love you in this way 
because I do not know any other way 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 your eyes close.”

~ Pablo Neruda
