  • another day arrives
    softly from the darkness
    into light
    and the first bird sings
    and then another

    and i worry about Hermine
    and my son at the beach
    and the refugees swimming to shore
    with their kids on their backs

    and i thank God I am free
    to love
    and to live

    y llega otro dia
    suavemente de la oscuridad
    hacia la luz
    y canta el primer pájaro
    y luego otro

    y me preocupa el huracán
    y mi hijo que se va a la playa
    y pienso en los refugiados nadando hacia la costa
    cargando a sus hijos en sus cansadas espaldas

    y agradezco a Dios por mi libertad
    de amar
    y de vivir
