Even before I knew what the chorus meant, “Todo Tiene Su Final” made me feel a bit bittersweet. I do not know why. It is a bouncy song, practically joyful in its rhythm. But some part of my soul heard the words and knew. “Todo tiene su final. Nada dura para siempre.” Everything comes to an end. Nothing lasts forever.
Tonight at work, that song came on and as usual, my hips started moving while my heart stopped.
I took a bite of tamal de pollo and remembered. Quiero unas cervezas con limón, porque no quiero recordar.
