On a string


Ever have I waited for you—
` you to be near me
` you to endear me
` you before I knew thee

Y por esperar descubrí esperanza.

Still do I remember you—
` you who came before
` you who could’ve been more
` you not meant for
` me

Y por esperar conocí esperanza.

Yet did I think of you—
` you were a leader
` I found you a dreamer
` you’re a believer
` in we

Y por esperar encontré esperanza.

So I was told I could still hope for you
So I was told to watch and wait for you
So I was told I’d yet to fathom you

Y por esperar aprendía esperanza.

And I learned that I was meant for you
And I learned my pain could birth love too
And I learned to see with heart renewed

Y por esperar veía esperanza.

Now you and I have come to know
that you and I are not alone,
and you and I will walk this road:

Al fin de esperar abracé mi esperanza.
