Los ojos de mi padre


Del album Pilgrim (1998), esta canción titulada "My father´s eyes", compuesta e interpretada por el genial Eric Clapton, en la cuàl se ve reflejado en carne viva, el dolor por la perdida de su hijo Connor ya expresado en la canción "Tears in heaven" , llevada al máximo nivel de desahogo, al sentir la necesidad de ver a través de los ojos de su padre, a su propio hijo.
La música , la poesia, como elementos de cicatrización de una herida que no cierra, pero que trasforma sufrimiento en dulce melodia.


My father's eyes

video

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.

Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
When I look in my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.

Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.

As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

My father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
I looked into my father's eyes.
