Tu eres la tristeza de mis ojos
Que lloran en silencio por tu amor
Me miro en el espejo y veo en mi rostro
El tiempo que he sufrido por tu adios

Obligo a que te olvide el pensamiento
Pues siempre estoy pensando en el ayer
Prefiero estar dormida que despierta
De tanto que me duele que no estes

Como quisiera ayy que tu vivieras
Que tus ojitos jamas se hubieran cerrado nunca y estar mirandolos

Amor eterno e inolvidable tarde o temprano
Estare contigo para seguir amandonos

Yo he sufrido tanto por tu ausencia
Que desde ese dia hasta hoy no soy feliz
Y aunque tengo tranquila mi conciencia
Se que pude haber yo hecho mas por ti

Obscura soledad estoy viviendo la misma soledad de tu sepulcro
Tu eres el amor del cual yo tengo el mas triste recuerdo de acapulco

Como quisiera ayy que tu vivieras
Que tus ojitos jamas se hubieran cerrados nunca y estar mirandolos
Amor eterno e inolvidable tarde o temprano
Estare contigo para seguir amandonos

    You are the sadness of my eyes, which cry in silence for your love. I love at myself in the mirror and see in my face the time I have suffered since your good-bye. I force my thoughts to forget about you(. or to stop thinking about you). Because im always thinking in the yesterday. I prefer to be asleep, then awake., because it hurts so much that your not here. How i would want that you were alive. That your eyes would have never closed and to be looking at them. Eternal love. Sooner or later I will be with you to keep on loving each other. I have suffered alot because of your absence. That from that day til now I am not happy. And even thought i have a calm coinscience I know I could have done so much more for you. i am living a dark loniness the same loniness of your tomb. You are the love for which i have the most saddest memory of Acapulco. I would want that u lived. to keep loving each other.

    Hearing this song was meant for her brother who passed makes me even more emotionally connected to this song. I feel the lyrics ... Because I AM always thinking of the past when he was still here... Of yesterday. Knowing we could have done more for someone after they are gone, it seems like our conscience can't help but dwell on the guilt of being the one left alive. To me , it is this same guilt that keeps us from really living (not just existing) after the suffering and pain of losing someone so close.

    There hasn't been a time when I have heard this song and not hung my head and cried. There is so much pain and emotion behind the song. It is carried in the simplicity and strain of the lyrics. It is truly heartbreaking. I've grown up listening to this song as did my elder siblings and parents, it makes it that much more special for me.

    Actually Juan Gabriel wrote this song about his mother. He let Rocio Dorcal sing it because her daughter had just died. My mom died July 7, 2013. Not one day passes I don't think of her. I saw video of Juan singing this song at a concert. The heart break in his voice. His face. I know his pain. My life will never be the same. Eres mi amor eterno mama.

    My brother passed away a little over 4 years ago when he was 17 and this is the song he was buried to. A day doesn't go by that I do not think about the memories I hold of him. This song will forever bring tears to my eyes even though I sing it almost on a daily basis. I love you Tony!
