Through the eyes of Haiti

Carry beautiful Love;

Enfold in my heart,

As I smell your sweetness;

stirring within

Freedom I wish from afar.


While you smile,

Chant, dance;

Bathe in unity,

I stretch forth my hands;

Humbly—to you.


Through the eyes of Haiti,

I can see your birds;

Of children singing joy,

As I welcome your–love spirit

Oh so patiently.
