While death is everywhere

Hope has fallen apart

How can your people not realize

The damage caused in our lives.


Can’t they see our innocent blood

Furiously flowing down the streets

And becoming mud with the soil?


How is it that they pay no heed

To the exhausting weeping of our kids

It is not their fault but ours

For having given them birth

On this land of eternal wars


Oh dear Lord!

Where have you gone?

Have you perchance become deaf?

Do you still hear our prayers?


My childish heart still

Fails to understand

Why is it that man’s souls

Are made of greed and

Endless thirst for more.


Is the ambition to have

These lands on your side

Worth the death of thousand of lives?


Oh my dear God,

In your hands we are

Do of us what you think it’s right.

A Orillas del Ganges




Río místico y ancestral

A tus orillas me siento a meditar

Sobre penas que en tus aguas

Han de viajar hacia el más allá


En una balsa de madera

Adornada con flores rojas y velas

Te llevas mi ilusión

Y mis sueños sin realizar


Recojo un poco de ti entre mis manos

Y lavo las lágrimas que corren por mi cara

Quien tanto amé ya no está

Y en aquella balsa por tus aguas va


Déjame no sólo tu agua acariciar

Sino lavar mis anhelos con las cenizas

De quien ya no podré mirar

Pero quien siempre he de amar


Oh Ganges! Tú has de llevarte

Hacía tus profundidades

Los más íntimos secretos

Qué solo a ti han de contarte


Lavo mi cara con tus aguas

Y dejo ir mis añoranzas

A lo lejos veo la balsa

Llevándose mis esperanzas

For a love that now I know it’s forever gone…

I will leave
And set you free
I will walk away
From your dreams

From your memories
Far away I’ll be
As “Goodbye” you said
You needn’t to worry
For I won’t call again

Erase me
Remove me
Send me away from
Your thoughts
Don’t think of me anymore

I’ll hide my feelings
In the dark corners
Of my heart
I won’t ever tell those
To you again
My voice you will forget

I’m leaving now
Setting you

 by Pablo Neruda
I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.
Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.
In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
