In loving memory of my Mother…

Today I remember you quiet, as a glance
at times verdigris and others a little bluish,
as a bright star from my distant exile
illuminating my path while I weep clarity

Unhurried on this remoteness consuming me
whereas you are rose taking her time,
lifting yourself from the vastness of the stars
and the stillness in my soul remembering alone.

Oh Mother, I carry you impregnated on every sigh
of this world that was left without your charms,
as my lettering’s being left without love.

Today your name sounds timeless in my mind
and is flowing as broad river that never end
as the hours pass on as your clear waters…
Hoy te recuerdo tranquilo, como una mirada
a veces verde gris y otras un tanto azulada,
como un lucero desde mi destierro distante
iluminando mi sendero mientras lloro claridad

Sin prisas, en esta lejanía que me consume
mientras tu eres rosa que se toma su tiempo,
elevándote entre la inmensidad de los astros
y la quietud de mi alma recordándote a solas.

Oh Madre, te llevo impregnada en cada suspiro
de este mundo que se quedo sin tus encantos,
mientras mis letras se van quedando sin amores.

Hoy tu nombre suena eterno en mi memoria
y va fluyendo como rio amplio que no se agota
mientras las horas pasan como tus claras aguas
