TATA LALO

Nunca se lo dije Tata Lalo

en un tiempo cuando apenas se formaba mi destino

cuando buscaba héroes ficticios

y necesitaba alguien que su cariño me diera

usted estaba presente

vino a mi vida cuando mas lo necesitaba.

El día que el todo poderoso ponía a prueba su fe

su fortaleza

me dio tanta tristeza

por no estar a su lado,

pero aún de lejos

en mis oraciones le decía lo mucho que lo quiero.

Es mi destino

es mi martirio

el nunca estar cerca de las personas que amó

cuando se enferman

cuando se mueren

es que acaso es mi castigo

este maldito destierro.

Tata, gracias por permitirme conocerlo

por hacerme parte de la familia

por sus sonrisas

por sus ejemplos

en mi libro de la vida

usted es una Ceiba

es libre como el Quetzal

fuerte cómo el hormigo

valiente heredero

de la tierra de Occidente.

Esta no es una despedida

es mi forma de decirle lo mucho que lo quiero

pues ha sido como un ángel guardián

el padre que todos hubiesen querido tener.
