Who Am I?

I’ve seen Kamehameha rule the islands.                                                                                                                     I’ve watched the whalers come and go.

I smelled the sugar cane and wept when it left.

I partied with Marines as they prepared to do battle with the Japanese.                                                                         I mourned as fewer came back than left.

I’ve worked hand and hand with visitors as they scrimped and saved for the vacation of a lifetime.

I nurtured the children, the businesses, the workers as Covid 19 ravaged their ranks.

My name is Hawaii. I have always been here and no matter what happens, I always.
