Soledad (English translation)
It was a starless night
when departing from me you left me
so much pain and so much evil.
Since the day you left
in the village there’s only
The streams are dry
and in the streets thousand echoes
call you night and day.
Soledad... come back now
to take away your songs.
The crepe, which casts a shadow
over my loneliness, will stay forever. (repetition of the whole stanza)
Soledad... come back now...
And it comes back now... my loneliness...
- 1. Soledad is the name of a woman, meaning solitude.
