Thanks to Miguel Matamoros and all those singers and musicians who are featured in these sound files and videos.

This post is dedicated to all the people in the Caribbean and elsewhere who have experienced or are experiencing the wrath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Jose or the earthquake in Mexico.

Rest In Peace for all those who lost their lives.

For the living my hope is that the recovery will be as thorough as possible, and that many people will join together in offering financial and other support.

"Lágrimas negras (Black Tears) is a bolero-son composed in 1929, with lyrics and music by the Cuban composer and singer Miguel Matamoros (1894–1971). It is one of his most famous songs.[1]"

LYRICS: LAGRIMAS NEGRAS ("Black Tears") - English translation from Spanish
(Composition: Miguel Matamoros)

Although you have thrown me into abandonment
Although all my illusions have already died
Instead of cursing you with just anger
In my dreams, I'll fill you up
In my dreams, I will fill you with blessings

I suffer the immense pity of your loss
I feel the deep pain of your game
And I cry without you knowing that my crying
Has black tears
Has black tears like my life

You want to leave me, I do not want to suffer
With you I go my saint although it costs me to die
A love gardener
Sow a flower and leave
Another comes and cultivates it
Which of the 2 will it be?

You want to leave me, I do not want to suffer
With you I go my saint although it costs me to die
With you I go my saint although it costs me
Whatever it costs
With you I go my saint although it costs me to die
Because I do not want to cry, black tears for you
