LA BELLEZA /BEAUTY (Tango)

Un buen día caminaba por mi barrio
Observando la expresión que había en los rostros
Note como la belleza estaba en todos
Aunque a veces se encontrara escondida

En toditos note como el sentimiento
Modelaba y resaltaba la belleza
Los que mas felicidad me transmitían
Eran quienes mas hermosos se veían

Entonces comprendí
que somos el fiel reflejo
De aquello que pensamos
Y tenemos en nuestro corazón
Cuanto mas seas feliz
mas tu belleza brillara
Deja que el amor le gane al enojo y al rencor
Para así despertar todo tu esplendor

Para que quieres seguir guardando odio
Si es veneno que marchita tu belleza
Que te cansa, desanima y te frustra
Cuando en vez puedes brillar como una estrella

Cada vez que pienses algo que te duele
Que da miedo, que no quieres o te enoja
Abandona de inmediato el pensamiento
Y remplazalo por uno de amor

Así comprenderás
que somos el fiel reflejo
De aquello que pensamos
Y tenemos en nuestro corazón
Cuanto mas seas feliz
mas tu belleza brillara
Deja que el amor le gane al enojo y al rencor
Para así despertar todo tu esplendor

One day I was walking around my neighborhood
Observing the expressions on everyone's faces
I noticed that everyone had beauty
Even though sometimes it is hidden.
 
In every one of them I saw how feelings
Were reflected and enhanced beauty
The most beautiful women and most handsome men
Were the ones whose faces were the happiest.
 
I realized that that we are a true reflection
Of those feelings that we feel
Of the way that we live
Of what we have in our hearts
The happier you are
The more your beauty will shine
Let love win over anger and bitterness
And in this way, you will awaken all your splendor.
 
Why do you want to stoke your hate
It is a poison that wilts your beauty
That makes you feel tired, steals your inspiration  and frustrates you
Instead you could shine like a star.
 
Each time you think about something that hurts you
Something that you fear, that you don't want or that angers you
Let go of that thought immediately
And replace it with one of love.
 
And so, you will realize that that we are a true reflection
Of those feelings that we feel
Of the way that we live
Of what we have in our hearts
The happier you are
The more your beauty will shine
Let love win over anger and bitterness
And in this way, you will awaken all your splendor.
