Mi Amor Por Ti
Por Corina Lozoya
Mi niño te veo crecer, tu dulce mirada me hace feliz
Sabiendo que un día me vas a decir “Mama, te quiero”
Estavas en el hospital por un mes, tradando de sentir a mama
Mi amor por ti, es mas grande que el amor que la tierra le tiene al mar
Mi amor por ti, es mas grande que el amor que yo me tengo
Mi niño, te veo sonreir, tu sonrisa hace al sol salir
Sabia que los años van a pasar y vas hacer un hombre
Todos los días del almanezer te veo ,
No hay un día que no te quiera mas que ayer
Mi niño mi amor por ti es grande.

Cries, “Mum Mum” *
And meow to the cat
Adan of the banana face and cookie crumbs
Who is learning how to drink out of a cup
Scared of mistakes and leaving his mom
Lover of remote control, mommy’s make up and all his friends in daycare
Lover of milk and attention
Thanks to you for making my life better
Thanks to you for being the best son
Adan of the loving
