Sollozarás

To those who knew his much abused country
his love
the poet thundered,
“sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura”
Yet, it is only a country

How much more truth is there
when I think of you
sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura

You, my love
know this tenderness
such fear it causes you
sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura

You, my love
have never known a man who would treat you so
and this, too, frightens you
sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura

One who will come to you
even if only for hours
through any Charybdis and Scylla
Even if for hours
my love
This is what you are for me
sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura

Do what you must,
mi corazón,
I am here, by your side
in your thoughts
Always
I will not leave you
sollozarás cuando conoces mi ternura.

You know my tenderness
