Suspiro (Yearning)

Si en tus recuerdos ves algàºn dà­a
entre la niebla de lo pasado
surgir la triste memoria mà­a
medio borrada ya por los aà±os,

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

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


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!
