Podrá nublarse el sol eternamente;

Here is a poem by Gustavo Adolfo Bequer, the mid-nineteenth century Spanish romantic poet on the meaning of eternal love. It turns out that the power of eternal love is greater than anything, than any force of nature or mighty event. I wish that was true…

Amor Eterno
Podrá nublarse el sol eternamente;
Podrá secarse en un instante el mar;
Podrá romperse el eje de la tierra
Como un débil cristal.
¡Todo sucederá!
Podrá la muerte
cubrirme con su fúnebre crespón;
pero jamás en mí podrá apagarse
la llama de tu amor

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer

So, the sun could be blocked out for ever, the sea could dry up in a moment, the earth’s axis could shatter, the poet could die, but the flame of the poet’s love could never be extinguished. This is the frenzy of one in love, but the reader knows it cannot last.
