Season - Dia De Los Muertos

Para los que vinieron antes

For those who came before

Whose tears have formed rivers

Whose blood has burned and ignited my passions

Whose bodies have returned to embrace Mother Earth

Releasing their spirits to God

Eternal flames lighting the sky

Pinning the night with their glory

Giving passage to the Sun to warm my soul

Oiga mis palabras,
Hear my words to know that I listen

Observa estas velas,
Observe these candles to know that I see

SiƩnteme el corazon,
Feel my heart to know that I love...

*Dia de Los Muertos, Day of the Dead is November 1st & 2nd, not a morbid celebration but a reunion of family.
