Can you send me the whole poem of Pablo Neruda that has these lines in it? "Do not fear, I am yours, but I am not the passenger or the beggar, I am your master, the one you were waiting for, and now I enter you life, no more to leave it, love, love, love, but to stay." I can't find the entire poem anywhere. And I don't know the title. Thank you, Roberta

I hope you still read this, as I see your question was posted quite some time ago, but this is the poem you are looking for.
Love, a question has destroyed you.
I have come back to you from thorny uncertainty.
I want you straight as the sword or the road.
But you insist on keeping a nook of shadow that I do not want.
My love, understand me, I love all of you, from eyes to feet, to toenails, inside, all the brightness, which you kept.
It is I, my love, who knocks at your door. It is not the ghost, it is not the one who once stopped at your window. I knock down the door: I enter all your life: I come to live in your soul: you can not cope with me.
You must open door to door, you must obey me, you must open your eyes so that I may search in them,
you must see how I walk with heavy steps along all the roads that, blind, were waiting for me.
Do not fear, I am yours, but I am not the passenger or the beggar, I am your master, the one you were waiting for, and now I enter your life, no more to leave it, love, love, love, but to stay.
