  1. Se fue mi Golondrina.
    Pero siempre estar谩s a mi lado.

    You will ALWAYS be by my side, Daddy

    A donde ir谩
    veloz y fatigada
    la golondrina
    que de aqu铆 se va
    por si en el viento
    se hallara extraviada
    buscando abrigo
    y no lo encontrara.

    Junto a mi lecho
    le pondr茅 su nido
    en donde pueda
    la estaci贸n pasar
    tambi茅n yo estoy
    en la regi贸n perdido
    O Cielo Santo!
    y sin poder volar.

    Deje tambi茅n
    mi patria idolatrada
    esa mansi贸n
    que me mir贸 nacer
    mi vida es hoy
    errante y angustida
    y ya no puedo
    a mi mansi贸n volver.

    Ave querida
    amada peregrina
    mi coraz贸n
    al tuyo acercare
    voy recordando
    tierna golondrina
    mi patria y llorare.

    The Swallow

    Where can it go
    rushed and fatigued
    the swallow
    passing by
    tossed by the wind
    looking so lost
    with nowhere to hide.

    By my bed
    I’ll put your nest
    until the season passes.
    I too, O heaven!
    am lost in this place
    unable to fly.

    Leave, too
    my beloved homeland,
    that home
    that saw my birth.
    My life today
    is wandering, anguished.
    I cannot
    return home.

    Dearest bird
    beloved pilgrim,
    my heart
    nigh to yours;
    tender swallow,
    my homeland and cry.

    Your daughter,

  4. We were all so saddened to learn of Raul’s passing. For the over 2 decades that we knew him, he was always warm and welcoming to our whole family. I’m not sure which one of our 7 children it was, but one of them mistakenly called him “Raluu” one time and it stuck! His kind eyes and warm smile are a comforting memory. We pray that he was immediately welcomed into heaven by a warm and loving God. And, we pray that his passing will serve as an opportunity for those who loved him to come together. He would have loved nothing more. Godspeed Raluu. We all love you!
