Flores del alma

Flores del alma (Vals)

Música: Juan Larenza
Letra: Alfredo Lucero Palacios / Lito Bayardo

Recuerdos de una noche venturosa
Que vuelven en mi alma florecer
Recuerdos que se fueron con el tiempo
Presiento que reviven otra vez

Igual que aquella noche tan lejana
Es esta de mi amarga soledad
La luna sobre el cielo azul me alumbra
Como otra blanca luna que ya nunca verre mas

“Si quieres olvidarme, dejame”
Dijiste la mañana que parti
“Tu sabes que te quiero, te querre
Y tuyo es el cariño que te di
A nadie quise tanto como a ti
Mi amante te ofreci mi corazón
Yo se que para siempre te ha perdido mi alma
Ya que todo ha sido solo una ilusion”
Asi me reprochabas sin saber
Que yo compadecia tu dolor
Que cuando me ofreciste tu querer
Yo estaba enamorada de otro amor
Comprendes el porque de mi partir?
Comprendes mi amargura en el adios?
Acaso con los años me ya has olvidado
Pero nunca yo

If you want to listen to this vals you can use the title which is also a link to the version of “Flores del alma” by the orchestra of Pedro Laurenz, sings Alberto Podestà.

This vals carries a lot of memories for me, not memories related to the tango world, they are even memories belonging to the world before the tango, but they are a strikingly exact description of one of the most difficult decision of my life.

I suppose that everyone, at a certain point of their life, had to make a decision just like this, or else carrying the same enormous significance as this one described in the lyrics. I hope that those of you who had to do that decised wisely, I think I did.
