The authors, Fabián Beramendi and Darío Cardoso, remember the origins of the song through this dialogue:

Darío: What do you think about the new version that's been recorded?

Fabián: I love the fact that at last the song has been properly recorded, much better than the home-made attempt we did at first that was never completed properly.

Darío: What do you remember about those days, about how it all began?

Fabián: About how it all began? I only have vague memories or better yet, impressions; we were at the 2002 Uruguayan Summer School.

Darío: Do you remember that we were about to say goodbye to Sohrab Yazdaní and his daughter Shabnam and I think it was Lolo who asked you to sing a song one of Mateo's songs, "Príncipe azul" or something like that?

Fabián: Look, I clearly remember that I had an urge to say something to him the best way I could: through music. The chorus "hold on because the best is yet to come" could very well be "stay calm little angel that whatever comes will be for the best".

Darío: That's right, the chorus was ready, and with that we assembled the rest.

Fabián: For me Badí' is a mystery, a mystery of light. It is a small and simple song for a big strong boy, much stronger than any of us.

Darío: It's incredible, we only had 10 minutes and they were about to leave; that's right, the song sounds simple and has an easy tune, but the moment of inspiration was such that the song was able to reflect part of what was happening around Badí', his efforts, his love, the prayers from the friends and of course the blessings that come from God.

Fabián: That's the source of my admiration, then came the song and now the eagerness that some day we will all be able to sing it to him together.

Darío: Well, in a certain way we are all singing the song for Badí', in this version with Javier, Danny, Felipe, Sol, Diego and myself we are trying to transmit that feeling, a tribute from all of us to our beautiful mystery through a song.

The song's lyrics

(original lyrics in Spanish)

Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir
Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir

Llegaste a este mundo por una razón
Dios tiene atesorado para ti una misión
Aunque hayan caminos con pruebas y dolor
Suplica a tus hermanos la compasión de Dios

Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir
Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir

De 'Akká a Uruguay, de Persia a Canadá
La voluntad de Dios pronto se cumplirá
ángeles te acompañan en tu pronto caminar
Hay miles de oraciones que no te dejarán

Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir
Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir

Llegaste a este mundo por una razón
Dios tiene atesorado para ti una misión
ángeles te acompañan en tu pronto caminar
Hay miles de oraciones que no te dejarán

Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir
Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Espera que lo mejor está por venir
(literal translation to English)

Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Hold on because the best is yet to come

You came to this world for a reason

Although there are paths with trials and pain
Implore your brothers for God's Compassion

Angels accompany you on your prompt walk
There are thousands of prayers that will not leave you

Hold on because the best is yet to come
Badí', Badí', Badí', Badí'
Hold on because the best is yet to come

You came to this world for a reason

Angels accompany you on your prompt walk
There are thousands of prayers that will not leave you
