Pueblito viejo


Yesterday was "Dia de las velitas", an important celebration that we as Colombians have. For me this day was different than the other years, far from home, with a lot of feeling in my heart, and living this day the best as posible, showing to others what we do in this special day :) .

Everything was perfect, but at the end something reminds in me... the fact that I'am far from home. I don't know why I have this feelings and not during the begining of this experience.... maybe because is christmas, and in this place is more like a commercial season than a spiritual and familiar, like in Colombia. Maybe because I'm far from home, maybe because I'm trying to show how we celebrate Christmas in Colombia and all the regards come to my mind, giving to me the sensation of cry...

Now I want to enjoy more this season, living it with my style, with the Colombian style :) I want to share with you a song that makes me regard my home and the feeling that I want to live my best years there, with the woman that I will love and the family that we will have together :) . Definitivamente Colombia es pasion porque los Colombianos tenemos esa pasion que hace que podamos mover el mundo!

Pueblito Viejo

Lunita consentida colgada del cielo
como un farolito que puso mi Dios,
para que alumbraras las noches calladas
de este pueblo viejo de mi corazón.

Pueblito de mis cuitas de cosas pequeñitas
por tus calles tranquilas corrió mi juventud,
por ti aprendí a querer por la primera vez,
y nunca me enseñaste lo que es la ingratitud.

Hoy que vengo a tus lares trayendo mis cantares
y con el alma enferma de tanto padecer,
quiero pueblito viejo morirme aquí en tu suelo
bajo la luz del cielo que un día me vio nacer.
