U.S. Air Force Spouse Makes Music Video in Honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Continued)

Ms. Martinez says she wrote “Don’t Forget About Me” in October after the COVID-19 pandemic became tragically personal.  “The year 2020 inspired me to write the song,” she explained. “This year has been hard for my family because I lost my dad to COVID at the beginning of the pandemic. I started to question my faith and kept asking God and the Virgin of Guadalupe to not forget about me, that I needed them more than ever because I didn’t want to lose my faith.” She says she could “feel his presence throughout the whole process of writing the song.”

Ms. Martinez says she and her father had shared a goal for her to write a song good enough to appear on the annual, internationally streamed concert “La Noche Guadalupana” (“The Guadalupan Night”), sponsored by the National Basilica of Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Mexico. She recorded “Don’t Forget About Me” at RAM Studios in Italy. The music video, recorded at Maddona del Monte Catholic Church in Aviano, was accepted and shown on the Dec. 11 program.

Here follows an English translation of the lyrics, followed by the original lyrics in Spanish:

Don’t Forget About Me
By Katherine Martinez Cifuentes

Hail Mary,
I have come to sing to you in this day
As the world is spinning
Fill me with hope and guide my humble heart.
Virgin Mary I want your faith
I am looking to be more like you.
Morenita in silence
You always listen to my prayers
And you broke the chains
of my anguished soul
And now I enjoy you.
I have come to thank you and to give you with love
A million Ave Marias that are roses for you.
Virgin Mary I want your faith
I am looking to be more like you.
Holy Mary, pray for me
I am your little daughter, bless me with your love
And free me from evil
Don’t forget me,
give my angel a kiss
Protect my family,
Cover the world with love and faith
And hear my prayer … Amen

No Te Olvides De Mi
Por Katherine Martinez Cifuentes

Dios te salve, María
he venido a cantarte este día
mientras el mundo gira,
llena de esperanza y guía a mi humilde corazón.

Virgen María yo quiero tu Fe
Estoy buscando ser más como tú.

Morenita tu en silencio
escuchaste mis plegarias
y rompiste las cadenas
de mi alma angustiada
y ahora ya gozo de ti

He venido a agradecerte y a regalarte con cariño
Un millón de Ave Marias que son rosas para tí.

Virgen María yo quiero tu Fe
Estoy buscando ser mas como tú.

Santa María ruega por mi
soy tu hija pequeñita, bendíceme con tu amor
Y librame del mal

No te olvides de mi
dale un beso a mi angelito
Protege a mi familia
Cubre al mundo de amor y fe

Escucha mi plegaria… Amen
