Son Tuyos

Updated: Aug 2

El Conejito

by Manuel Bonilla

was the song

that brought

them home

for just

a few minutes


standing

physically

on a tile-floored Texas home

but

mentally

in Central America

for that one

precious

canción


as the lyrics poured

out in strings of phrases

and words

you could hear

their breathing

slow

from tear-filled

stutters

to calm

even

breaths


the video

on YouTube

was a life ring

catching each child

just as the waves

threatened

to overtake them


the instant

the song found their

ears

their lips began

to mouth the words

and

they settled


the familiarity

the memories

and the truths of

God’s promises

wrapping them in

His comforting

love


I’m so grateful

for finding

this song


it helped us

on many

difficult

days


where Jesus

and a little black bunny

brought

peace


because


both the bunnies

and the

children

belong to

Him

El Conejito

Manuel Bonilla


Jesús, Jesús quiero contarte una cosa

A ver ¿qué es?

Dímelo niña preciosa


Tengo un conejito negro

Con su cola cortas y sus ojos café

Dice mi tío Camilo

Que lo hallo jugando allá por el veden


Ya ves Jesús, acaso te descuidaste

Dice mamá que los conejos son tuyos

Vieras como se divierte jugando conmigo allá por el jardín

Dime Jesusito lindo

Que me lo has prestado para ser feliz


Si yo te lo presté

Para que juegues con él

No es conejo de peluche como algunos niños tiene por ahí

Este lo hice otro día

Y te lo he mandado porque crees en mí
