Los abuelos deberían ser eternos

Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could’ve been the medicine
And now you’re lying in the bed again
Either way I’ll cry with the rest of them

And my father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one
Although my grandma used to say
That he used to say

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie in sight for a little while, he wrote
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light, in life, in love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire in love

Things were all good yesterday
But then the devil took your breath away
And now we’re left here in the pain
Black suit, black tie, standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Came to my mind, I should paint it with a pen
Six years old, I remember when

My father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one
Although my grandma used to say
He used to say

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie in sight for a little while, he wrote
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light, in life, in love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire in love

To the love we love to love we love
To the love we love to love we love
To the love we love to love we love

And my father and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my mother and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
(And all of my brothers and my sisters, yeah)
And my father and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah

To the love we love to love we love
To the love we love to love we love
To the love we love to love we love

Afire love, Ed Sheeran

Sólo tenías un par de céntimos en el bolsillo, mucha paciencia y a una nieta que rodeaba los ojos cada vez que le repetías una de esas anécdotas que ahora me emociona recordar.

Nos convertimos en el centro del universo del otro en cuanto nos miramos a los ojos por primera vez, y no dejamos de serlo nunca.

Todo el mundo decía que eras raro, pero a mis ojos siempre fuiste especial, quizá por esa forma de reutilizar los palillos, de llevar el pelo o de caminar con unas zapatillas que literalmente hablaban. Eras mi abuelo. Ese hombre que me dejaba ganar al parchís, que peleaba conmigo para que comiera y que no valía para para disgustos cada vez que me caía, pero sobre todo ese  maestro que convertía en magia todo lo que tocaba, ya se tratara de madera o de flor.

Años después todo ha cambiado. Ahora soy yo la que te sujeto por miedo a que te caigas y la que te riñe cada vez que no quieres comer. Pero ese brillo en los ojos cada vez que nos miramos no cambiará nunca.

Te quiero, abuelo.
