Extranenme – Pero Dejenme Ir
Cuando lIegue al final de mi camino
y el sol esta bajando,
no se llenen de trizteza,
porque esta trizte por un alma
que ha sido liberada?
Extranenme un poco pero
no por mucho tiempo
ni con la cabeza para abajo,
recuerden el amor que compartimos,
extranenme – pero dejenme ir.
Pues este viaje que todos tenemos
que hacer y hacer solos,
es parte del plan de nuestro Maestro,
un paso en el camino asi ha el.
Cuando te sientas solo y
te duela el corazon,
ve con las amistades que tuvimos,
y juntos recuerden los bellos
momentos que pasamos.
Extranenme – pero dejenme ir.
