A short history of "Historia de um Amor" by Rey Arteaga Afro-Latin Musician and Critic ( Austin,Texas)
“Historia de Un Amor” is among the most popular love songs produced in the last seventy-five years and is a classic of the romantic bolero music repertoire. Composed by Panamanian Carlos Eleta Almaran (1918-2013) in 1955, and used for the soundtrack of the 1956 movie of the same title, “Historia de Un Amor” is a song inspired by the passing of his brother’s wife. This bolero, both lyrically and musically, powerfully evokes the feelings of love, loss, and longing that are representative of the familiar themes of this genre of Latin music. As such, it has become one of the most universally recorded and performed songs, popular with generations of audiences throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia.One of the most well-known renditions was recorded by legendary Mexican singer and film star Pedro Infante. The apex of the extraordinarily charismatic and talented Infante’s career was during the golden era of Mexican cinema, in the 1940s and 1950s, and tragically ended with Infante’s death, at age thirty-nine, in a plane crash in 1957.

Ravayete yek Eshgh

خالی شده از تو نگاه‌َم
بی‌ تو، زمستان شد هر آه‌َم
گر از دیده روان بودی،
چرا بر تن چو جان بودی؟
چرا رفتی از شب، ماه‌َم؟
تو، هست و باش‌ِ من بودی که بودم
من از باش‌َت همه هست‌َم ربودم
نه باش‌ِ تو بر عالم ماند
نه دل هست‌َت ز جان‌َم راند
از این بی ‌باش‌ِ تو هستن چه سودم؟
آه از این سوز سنگین، که بر دل نشسته
آه از این روز غمگین، که شب را شکسته
آه از این مُرده‌ی مانده
آه از این مُرده که من
آه از ما را ز خود رانده
آه از عشق، آه از وطن ...
