ELLA NO ES MENTIRA

 

IT IS NOT A LIE

Diecinueve años tiene esa mujer
y se parte el alma para sostener,
seis o siete hermanos menores de diez.
el sol aparece y ella echa andar...
camino al trabajo, otro día igual

Nineteen years it has this woman
and the soul breaks to support,
six or seven minor brothers of ten.
the sun appears and she throws gait...
I walk to the work, another equal day

Ella no es mentira para disfrazar
de rosa la vida, eso no es verdad.
De mirada triste y sonrisa audaz,
parece una hormiga para trabajar,
sabe bien que el mundo no se detendrá,
no cabe el cansancio ni la enfermedad.
en sus manos leves recias para dar...
quién le enseñaría su modo de amar?

It is not a lie to disguise
of rose the life, that is not true.
Of sad look and bold smile,
it looks like an ant to work,
it is known well that the world will not stop,
it fits neither the weariness nor the illness.
in his light thick hands to give...
who would teach him his way of loving?

No se ha preguntado,
porque aún siendo niña, ha dejado de jugar!
Ella no es mentira es una mujer,
qué ama la vida sin pensar por qué?
ella no es mentira, puedo asegurar,
junto a ti camina, detente a mirar.

He has not wondered,
because still being a girl, it has stopped playing!
It is not a lie she is a woman,
what loves the life without thinking why?
it is not a lie, I can make sure,
along with you it walks, hold to looking.

Diecinueve años tenía esa mujer, prometí no olvidarla, no lo hare!
Nineteen years it had this woman, I promised not to forget her, I will not do it!
