I am grateful to the earth

From "This Is Where We Live," by Pablo Neruda, in The Poetry of Pablo Neruda:
    I am grateful to the earth
    for having waited
    for me
    when sky and sea came together
    like two lips touching;
    for that's no small thing, no?--
    to have lived
    through one solitude to arrive at another,
    to feel oneself many things and recover wholeness.
