I meet so many people that visit our island and have to say that it is always such a pleasure. Recently I met with Pat and Marty and was is awe of their love for our island. Thanks you so much. I sometimes feel as if Aruba is my daughter and the visitors are suitors. Go figure out that misplaced emotion. You all - inspire me to write my thoughts.
I see you
Hurrying to the sands I thought were mine
You have taken them from me - haven't you?
That is fine - I do not mind
We know you (Aruba and I )- by your prints
Much like a bandit is discovered by his thumb print on a glass
I see your foot prints on our sand after you have left
Thousands of heels and five times as many toes
You are an indelible truth
You are our visitors
Steal us like a thief in the night -
We shan't report this to the authorities,
They would only be pleased anyway
