Forever young



Hace unos días le mostré esta canción a mi hija. Más que se la mostré. Se la canté, se la recité y se la dije con toda la intención de que un dia me recuerde así, en medio de la cocina un viernes por la noche, mostrándole la canción de a poquito, haciendo énfasis en algunas frases, destacando otras palabras.

Con toda la intención. Como para que esas palabras, que no son mías, se adueñen de mi cara y algún día cuando tenga nuestra edad o lo necesite se acuerde de ellas.


Se trata de "Forever Young", un tema que Rod Stewart incluyó en el disco "Out Of Order", de 1988.



Voy a saltearme la parte en la que recuerdo que Bob Dylan no estuvo nada conforme con la situación y confío en que amigos como Ernie Reid amplíen un poco al respecto. Igual, como tengo un profundo respeto por Bob Dylan, he aquí su "Forever Young", la original, la primera, la inimitable, la de él.

Por esos años, yo vivía una linda historia de amor. Era 1989 y Rod Stewart tocaba en River en un marzo caluroso y exaltado. Mi primer recital de lo que he dado en llamar de "césped cancha", porque si vas a estadio, vas a césped. No hay vuelta que darle. O más bien, no había. A los 20, así era la cosa.


Tuve la suerte de tener un novio alto, con amigos altos. Fui por un ratito, esas chicas a las que los novios las suben a los hombros. El recital estuvo increíble y Rod se cantó todo.


Pese a que había otros hits como el muy bailable "Lost In You" en ese disco,  "Forever Young" se transformó para mí en un caso de plegaria, el tema que yo escuchaba como un buen augurio. Un deseo profundo de que el día que no estuviéramos juntos, eso sería lo que yo querría para mi novio alto. 


Recuerdo cantárselo para que lo atesorara en el futuro. Hoy sigue siendo lo que yo quiero para él. Podría destacar varias frases, pero la verdad es que para mí la plegaria es la canción entera.


Mientras le mostraba la canción a mi hija, con toda la intención, mirándola a los ojos, pensé en esta plegaria renovada que un día te regalé a vos y ahora le transmito a ella. Le vi en los ojos que si no entendía bien todas las palabras, entendía que la quiero, que le estaba diciendo algo importante, que cuando levante vuelo, no importa hacia dónde vaya, allí estaremos.


El verano pasado, mi marido y yo nos acercamos a verlo. Nuestras hijas se conocieron. Tengo las fotos en la compu, siempre a punto de enviártelas. Haceme el favor, mostrale a tu hija esta canción. Contale de qué se trata. Con el mismo amor que la cantamos siempre.


For my gift is my song and this one's for you.





Forever Young (Rod Stewart)

May the good Lord be with you

Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever Young

May good fortune be with you

May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
with a prince or a vagabond
And may you never love in vain
and in my heart you will remain
Forever Young

And when you finally fly away

I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell
But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever Young, Forever Young
