Así Te Quiero


Así te quiero

 

I've loved you for lifetimes

that echo in my heart

 

Unconditionally and infinitely

I've loved you in grinding times

rough mornings

and Sunday evenings

 

Así te quiero

 

Like sunshine after a hard winter

and the wrinkles of healing pain

 

I've loved you in broken smiles

awkward silences

and truthful solitude

 

I’ve loved you in wailing songs

uplifted from my chest

 

I’ve rejoiced in the dance of your shadow

and the path your crooked feet have taken

 

Your borderless eyes need no definition to exist

 

I choose to be in nobody’s world but yours

Always

No question

Through years, tears and fears

I have been there to witness the liberation of your strength

 

Mujer

 

You are a reflection of humanity

in its rawest beauty

 

Yo

Te quiero

Así.
