Biglietto lasciato prima di non andar via

Yet again a poem by Giorgio Caproni. And yet again, very romantic. Not just because it’s Italian, but because of the poetic language. If you’ve ever had a long distance relationship, this poem will get you crying. Big time.

Se non dovessi tornare,
sappiate che non sono mai partito.
Il mio viaggiare
È stato tutto un restare
qua, dove non fui mai.

If I don’t come home,
I want you to know that I never left.
My travels
have all been staying
right here, where I never was.

Giorgio Caproni
