Cuánto he esperado este momento

Cuánto he esperado que estuvieras así

Cuánto he esperado que me hablaras

Cuánto he esperado que vinieras a mí

Yo sé bien lo que has vivido

Yo sé bien por qué has llorado

Yo sé bien lo que has sufrido

Pues de tu lado no me he ido

Pues nadie te ama como yo

Nadie te ama como yo

Mira la cruz

Esa es mi más grande prueba

Nadie te ama como yo

Mira la cruz

Fue por tí, fue porque te amo

Nadie te ama como yo

Yo sé bien lo que me dices

Aunque a veces no me hables

Sé bien lo que en tí sientes

Aunque nunca lo compartes

Yo a tu lado he caminado

Junto a tí yo siempre he ido

Y aún a veces te he cargado

Yo he sido tu mejor amigo

-Martin Valverde
