Abuelita

Richard Shindell
Language: English



In a crowd, I don't know which way to turn
I'm afraid I might not see you go by

But if I did, would I find the strength to speak?
And would you want to hear what a stranger would tell you?

That Soledad was your mother's name
She fell in love with my Juan Luis
They may be gone
But I'm still your Abuelita

You were born, and they took you from her arms
And a captain brought you home to his family

Now it may be that they have raised you as their own
And that it's all you've known of home all these years

But Soledad was your mother's name
She fell in love with my Juan Luis
They maybe gone
But I'm still your Abuelita

In my mind, there are pictures of your face
As it might be now
And I pray I would know you

So I will wait with the others in the square
You can find me there
And I will tell you a story

That Soledad was your mother's name
And how she loved my Juan Luis
Now they are gone
But I'm still your Abuelita
