You deserve a love who loves you when you’re uncombed (Mereces un amor que te quiera despeinada) by Frida Khalo (1907 – 1954)

 

You deserve a love who loves you when you’re uncombed,
Even with the reasons that get you up suddenly
and with everything and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe,
who can conquer the world at your side,
who feels that your embraces go with her skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you,
who is in paradise every time she looks into your eyes,
who never tires of reading your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens to you when you sing,
who stands by you when you are ridiculous,
who respects your freedom,
who accompanies you on your flight,
who’s not afraid of falling.
You deserve a love who will take away the lies,
who brings you dreams,
coffee
and poetry.

Mereces un amor que te quiera despeinada,
incluso con las razones que te levantan de prisa
y con todo y los demonios que no te dejan dormir.

Mereces un amor que te haga sentir segura,
que pueda comerse al mundo si camina de tu mano,
que sienta que tus abrazos van perfectos con su piel.

Mereces un amor que quiera bailar contigo,
que visite el paraíso cada vez que ve tus ojos
y que no se aburra nunca de leer tus expresiones.

Mereces un amor que te escuche cuando cantas,
que te apoye en tus ridículos,
que respete que eres libre,
que te acompañe en tu vuelo,
que no le asuste caer.
Mereces un amor que se lleve las mentiras,
que te traiga la ilusión,
el café
y la poesía.
