Fidel took my hand and he spoke for a while
I felt real goodness and I just had a smile
Heads of State had to wait, I was not sorry
It is not everyday I meet History!
It is really timing which is the matter:
"Had Napoleon been born 50 years later
He would have been a farmer in Corsica".
Thus spoke the old man in America,
The sea is still there beyond the white beach
And so went the man no one could impeach.
I am getting old and looked at the sea
Had a good time though, a time you cannot see,
For in Kalatit state, time itself shows mercy.
