Suspiro (Yearning)


Si en tus recuerdos ves algún día
entre la niebla de lo pasado
surgir la triste memoria mía
medio borrada ya por los años,

piensa que fuiste siempre mi anhelo
y si el recuerdo de amor tan santo
mueve tu pecho; nubla tu cielo,
llena de lágrimas tus ojos garzos;

¡ah! ¡no me busques aquí en la tierra
donde he vivido, donde he luchado,
sino en el reino de los sepulcros
donde se encuentran paz y descanso!

Yearning

If in your memories some day you see
Amidst the fog of times past
The sad remembrance of me appear
Half-erased now by the years,

Think that you were always my yearning
And if the memory of love so sacred
Moves your heart; clouds your sky,
Fills with tears your pretty eyes;

Ah! don't search for me here on earth
Where I've lived, where I've struggled,
Instead seek me out in the kingdom of the dead
Where peace and rest can be found!

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
