This September 6 I have seen my father, reach his 90 years. Remembering how loved and celebrated he is by all those around him has made me reflect on my own life and wonder if one day, like him, I will be able to reach an advanced age, clothed with so much and sincere love. Not because of the songs I’ve written, or the ideas that have occurred to me, not because of my artistic footprint but because of my human legacy. Have I listened to others enough when a pain afflicted them? Celebrated your joys, understood and forgiven your limitations? Have I given them my uninterrupted attention when they needed it or have I been too busy, consumed with my own worries, absent on the mobile or absorbed by my little things? They say that life is a sneeze, but perhaps one with which you can infect many with joy. A non-perishable joy, the one that makes us smile when we remember someone dear, people like my father, who throughout his life has tirelessly distributed his light like an inexhaustible oil lamp. Those of us who know him know how he makes each of the people he meets feel unique and special. He looks them in the eye, listens to them, advises them, connects, loves. He has been a writer, a creative soul, owner of a vast literary and intellectual wealth, but that is not exactly what we celebrated in his day with boleros, balloons and drinks. At his age, words may become more and more elusive, or in his fertile mind, bright ideas may appear less and less frequently. It often happens that over the years, what occupies our periphery leaves us first. But above all prognosis, in an unrepeatable being like him, I know that the intrinsic, the primary will remain; his ability to express and feel love, his joy, his light, his charisma and above all his rhythm! Because what is truly important is not devoured by the jaws of time. Nothing and nobody takes away what we dance! Not the material from which we are made and rather ask Don Wi! Oh cute little thing dad! ❤️ #tbt
Happy bday B !! @beyonce Thinking of you on your special day! Enjoy with your loved ones !!! Remembering good times !!! 💋

Daddy cute, You have driven my steps and lit my path. You have shown me that life is open and deep like a sea and thus, you have given meaning to mine by flooding it with your joy. You are my inspiration, “My accomplice and everything” My best friend. Happy 90 years spent spectacularly !! I love you with all my being. Your girl, Shakira.
