In Loving Memory Chispita Mi Nene Adorado

I only want you.

Memories are golden.
Maybe that is true.
I do not want memories
I only want you.

A billion times, I needed you.
A billion times, I sobbed for you
if love alone could have saved you
you would have never died!

In life, I loved you profoundly;
in death, I love you deeply.
In my heart, you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears, heartache and devastation could build
a stairway and a lane to heaven
I would walk to heaven
and bring you back.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
