I saw you smile and I gazed

Was there anything that would make a person smile in my wounded city?

Your eyes sparkled with love

Your face beamed

The sound of your hearty laugh

My heart skipped

I realized that we are a happy people by nature

No matter how much our oppressor tries to crush us

That we take advantage of the small things life offers us

We play with our children

And build sand castles

We ride the sea waves

And tread the shoreline

To let the water tickle our feet

We nurture the olive trees

Knowing that we are both entrenched into this land

Never to be uprooted
