One Day In Haïti
(Automatic translation of Un Jour en Haïti - Sorry for the mistakes)
Numerous are those who dream
To fly off one day toward Haiti.
And putting some money aside
For a small stay in their country.
When a picture falls under their eyes
In relation with the beloved earth,
They are ready to shout: Thank you my God!
Inviting the other to look at them.
Let's feed this beautiful dream more
While waiting to go there for real.
Propose us again of other journeys.
Who will be counted like kindness.
Send us on the Face of the book
Of the memories on the glossy paper.
It will give us the happiness to live
To see our feet one day over there putting.
Some photos of our Citadel,
Without forgetting the Sans-Souci palace.
But, one would say two beautiful damsels
Who wait patiently for their husband.
Compatriots of the diaspora,
Let's keep living in our hearts our dream.
Let's fight, let's pray! It will achieve itself !
Before here below our life ends!
Thank you to Mrs. GD for this inspiration.
