Sabor a mi

Papito&Mamita
 
Early in their courtship my parents chose a song to be "theirs", its lyrics carried a promise of eternal love, of many years of togetherness, of souls that reach to one another...  At 7:00 am on Wednesday March 6th of 1963, my parents were married in Chinandega, Nicaragua.  50 years they have been together, and together they have enjoyed happiness and prosperity; together they have weathered war and loss; together they have battled illness and welcomed life; and together they have been an exemplar of love,  marriage, unity, and family.  My parents still dance "their" song whenever it plays, and 50 years later these verses are truer than ever.

Sabor a mí
composed by Alvaro Carrillo

Tanto tiempo disfrutamos de este amor
nuestras almas se acercaron tanto a así
que yo guardo tu sabor
pero tú llevas también
sabor a mí.

Si negaras mi presencia en tu vivir
bastaría con abrazarte y conversar
tanta vida yo te dí
que por fuerza tienes ya
sabor a mí.

No pretendo ser tu dueño
no soy nada yo no tengo vanidad
de mi vida doy lo bueno
soy tan pobre, que otra cosa puedo dar.

Pasarán mas de mil años, muchos más
yo no se si tenga amor la eternidad
pero allá, tal como aquí
en la boca llevarás
sabor a mí.
