Pablo Milanés "El breve espacio en que no estás" lyrics

Translation to: EN CA FR

Todavía quedan restos de humedad,
sus olores llenan ya mi soledad,
en la cama su silueta
se dibuja cual promesa
de llenar el breve espacio
en que no está...

Todavía yo no sé si volverá,
nadie sabe, al día siguiente, lo que hará.
rompe todos mis esquemas,
no confiesa ni una pena,
no me pide nada a cambio
de lo que dá.

Suele ser violenta y tierna,
no habla de uniones eternas,
mas se entrega cual si hubiera
sólo un día para amar.

No comparte una reunión,
mas le gusta la canción
que comprometa su pensar.
todavía no pregunté «¿te quedarás?».
temo mucho a la respuesta de un «jamás».
la prefiero compartida
antes que vaciar mi vida,
no es perfecta
mas se acerca a lo que yo
simplemente soñé...

There is still a trace of humidity,
her smell fills now my solitude,
on the bed is drawn her silhouette as a promise
to fill the brief space in which she is not

I still do not know whether she will return,
noone knows,the next day what they will do.
She ruins all of my plans,
she does not admit to even one fault,
she does not ask for anything in exchange
for what she gives

She tends to be violent yet tender,
she does not speak of eternal union,
but she gives herself as if there were
only one day for love

She does not partake in gatherings,
but she is fond of the song that compels her thoughts.
I still have not asked, "will you stay?"
I am very much afraid of a response of "never".
I would rather share her than empty out my life,
she is not perfect
but she is close to what I
simply dreamed of...
