Anticipation



“Como yo te ame
jamas te lo podras imaginar
pues fue una hermosa forma de sentir
de vivir, de morir y a tu sombra seguir
asi yo te ame” - Luis Miguel

These are lyrics to a song entitled “Como Yo Te Ame” by Luis Miguel. It's not the video I posted up above.  I couldn't find one that I liked with the song "Como Yo Te Ame".  So, I gave you a potpourri of his music instead.  This is an old video from 2000.   Now, back to my story.   Luis Miguel will be appearing in concert here on Saturday and I am counting down the days, literally. I've got 6th row tickets and I can't wait!  I am also making my friends on FB insane with all the videos I keep posting of him. Whatever, I warned them a few days ago that this would happen. You see, I don’t get all crazy-excited about concerts, UNLESS it is Luis Miguel or Chicago. Yes, Chicago. Still. Always. Sheddup. Don’t judge. I know I’m old! Anyway, back to Luismi (sounds like “Luis-Mee) That’s one of his many nicknames that the media gave him or maybe he did, who knows? So yeah, I’m "school-girl" annoying and excited! The song lyrics I posted are going to be difficult to translate without losing the heart and profoundness of the song, but I’ll give it my best shot. I’ll give you a little background, he’s telling a story about how he loved someone and how she will never know how much or to what depth. His music is very romantic, a la Michael Buble’ and Frank Sinatra. He’s a crooner for sure. And oh yeah, I love him.

Tonight, I am feeling a bit melancholy. Come on, you knew this was coming! I’ve written enough cheesy posts for you to guess! The thing is, I’m missing someone tonight. Well, I miss this person every day but tonight, tonight marks a year since, well, since.  And so, I have unlocked the vault that is my heart and let the memories I’ve kept away, trickle out. Just for tonight. Tomorrow, they go back to the vault and all mention of this will cease. At least, out-loud.

Now, on to the lyrics!

“You’ll never know how much I loved you
You can’t even imagine
It was a beautiful way to feel, to live, to breathe, to die
I chased your shadows
That is how much I loved you.”

Thanks for playing along kids! You've been greeeeeat!

ps-  WTF is up with Blogger this time? I can't see any of my followers again!

I love crooners--Frank, Tony, Dean, Michael, etc. Luismi has an amazing voice.

Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry this is a rough time for you. I wish I knew the perfect thing to say. My mama has always loved the movie Hope Floats--give hope a chance to float back up, and it will. *Hugs*

Oh, yeah, yesterday I posted, but it never showed up. Then I posted two test posts--one showed, the other didn't, so I deleted it. The one that showed doesn't have a date on it. I have NO clue what's going on these days! :(

Beautiful voice and I love what you wrote as the translation. Have a great time at the concert.

You know, they say it takes about 2 years to get over the loss of someone, so don't be too hard on yourself. :)
