Lo Que Quiero Ser ~ What I Want to Be

January 7, 2011 by gyp27

Yo quiero ser una gotita de tu lluvia.
Yo quiero ser un frijol pequeñito en tu plato.
Yo quiero ser un número chiquitito en tu cuaderno.
Yo quiero ser un ratoncito en tu mano.
Yo quiero ser un botón de tu camisa.
Yo quiero ser el color negro de tu pelo.
Yo quiero ser un pedacito de tu pan dulce.
Yo quiero ser un perrito pequeño y que me cuides.
Yo quiero ser un foco para iluminarte.
Yo quiero ser un papelito pequeño en tus
manos que diga, “te quiero mucho.”


I want to be a raindrop in your rain.
I want to be a small bean on your plate.
I want to be a small number in your notebook.
I want to be a tiny mouse in your hands.
I want to be a button of your shirt.
I want to be the black of your hair.
I want to be a slice of your Christmas pudding.
I want to be a little dog and that you take care of.
I want to be a light to shine on you.
I want to be a tiny paper in your hands
that says, “I love you so much.”
