    Arriving in Port Royal, I came to rest in the sun
    Clean, white sand beneath my feet
    I stared at the water, a shade of blue not seen before
    I felt like a 16th Century Buccaneer
    A stranger in a land I want to call my own
    A safe haven for the pirate that I am

    Just past the gracious beauty of Devon House
    The prettiest, blackest, skinniest little girl stood on the corner
    Dark were her eyes, matching her unblemished skin
    She stood as if waiting for someone
    Perhaps a brother who dives for coins in Montego Bay

    Her smile captured me
    “Just like those kids on the posters" I thought
    It was one of those last forever smiles
    I knew she would look the same when she became a woman

    As a woman, her smile would reflect the beauty that surround her youth
    Beauty that will come out in her words, her song, her life
    Beauty will never leave her
    Her smile will always be there
    Despite all of life’s problems
    Her smile will come through
    Like moonlight through Bamboo trees
    Seen from a Jamaican harbor view
