Beautiful moon, your undefeated beauty, lights up the night 
Majestic, you indicate the passage of time. 
Your tears of silver adorn sacred shrines 
And all men know your magnetic power 
I know you're a friend of the spirits of water 
Water not touched by the sun, which cures all ills 
I ask you to heal me of my ills of love. 

Beautiful moon, show me if I'll ever see my beloved 
You, who are the mother of the weather and seasons 
Give me the sign to know if I will see her again someday. 
If I have that joy and it is granted that she is pregnant 
I'm sure you will take care of her. 

Beautiful moon, has been loved and revered by men 
In different languages and locations, 
Today I see the moon reflected on the surface of the still waters 
When I am ready to leave my homeland 
Tell me please, what will become of me and my love 
And if I still have many nights to see her again.

Beautiful moon is Quillamama in the language of the Incas (quechua) 
Keel or Quillamama is the name given by the Incas to the moon. It was considered the sister and wife of Inti, the sun god, and had a beautiful closet with silver sheets and idols inside the temple of Koricancha in Cusco. 
The ancient Peruvians worshiped Keel invoking its protection to women and babies during childbirth. On the north coast of Peru his cult was very strong since ancient times. The Moche and Chimu, for example, called it "Si" and handed human sacrifices and offerings in beautiful temple pyramids as the Huaca de la Luna near Trujillo. The funny thing is that the star costenos selenite regarded as a divinity of masculine attributes, unlike the mountain villages trying to the Moon as a loving protective mother.
