about

A migrant mother apologizes to the son she left behind. [Translation below]

lyrics

Yo te amo de lejos aunque no lo puedas sentir
Deje el nombre en mi patria con tu adiós que triste sufrí

Ay, quiero darte razones
Ay, por mis grandes traiciones

Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me vine aquí

Con tristeza en el alma a frontera norte corrí
Ya creciste sin mamá y te harás gran hombre sin mi

Ay, de pedir tu perdones
Ay, por mis grandes traiciones

Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me vine aquí

Ay, no habían mas opciones
Ay, de sacarte de pobre

Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me vine aquí
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Por ti me fui, de ahí de ti
Que lo sufrí, estar lejos de ti
Por ti me vine aquí

Translation:

I love you from afar even if you can’t feel it
I left my name in my homeland along with our suffered goodbye

Oh, want to give you the reasons
Oh, for my great betrayal

For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I came here

With sadness in my soul toward the northern border I ran
You’ve grown without a mother and will become a great man without me

Oh, to ask for your forgiveness
Oh, for my great betrayal

For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I came here

Oh, there were no other options
Oh, to get you out of poverty

For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
For you I came here
For you I left, from there from you
For you I left, from there from you
I suffered the days I was far from you
For you I came here
