Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is one of my all-time favorite novels.  Heartwarming, heartbreaking… although I can’t say the same for the movie.  There is, however, an upside to the movie: the soundtrack.

With my limited grasp of Spanish, aided by online translators and some translations already done on the Internet, here’s my translation of that beautiful song in Love in the Time of Cholera, Shakira’s “Hay Amores.”

 

Oh, my love, for you I’ll do anything
Just for one second with you, away from the world
With you close to me

Oh my love, like River Magdalena
The way it approaches the shore
I want us to be that way too…

Oh, there are lovers, that resist whatever kind of damage
Like wine, they only grow better with age
Like my love for you will only grow so strong…

Oh, there are lovers, that wait for winter to turn to spring blossoms
Autumn evenings that await verdant tomorrows
These are the many ways that I love you.

Oh my love, do not forget the sea
It has seen my tears falling at night
Just from the memories of you

Oh my love, do not forget the day
That you have gone on your own way
And left me with a poor life all alone

Oh, there are lovers, that resist whatever kind of damage
Like wine, they only grow better with age
Like my love for you will only grow so strong…

Oh, there are lovers, that wait for winter to turn to spring blossoms
Autumn evenings that await verdant tomorrows
These are the many ways that I love you.

What I feel, for you… like the many ways that I can ever love you…
