Poem for Barbuda

Barbuda, if you could only understand,

The depth of love we have for you

If you could only see,

what we could see but you cannot see;

The warm affection and protection

That we so  yearningly wish to give you,

Our dear little sister!

Amidst your grief, and pain, and shock

Let reason resonate in your mind

That this spontaneity could only be

genuine to the core, pure,  not hypocritical,

And just accept it for what it is,

Not judging or presupposing anything!

Barbuda, when you thrive we do;

When you cry we do!

We are tied to you by history

And have grown inseparably like Siamese twins.

You need to breathe but we share a lung,

Co-existing lovingly we must get along

to rebuild, to reorganize, to revitalize your lives.

And our relationship, to make a more effective Antigua and Barbuda!

Barbuda, in spite of everything, we still love you!
