Golden Dolphins danced on my wrist for 14 days, 

Watching my encounters. 


They shimmered in the summer sun,  

Reminding me of home. 


En el Día catorce, we departed from each other. 

So much love was shown. 


No, the dolphins weren’t lost. 

Nor stolen, 

But found a new home. 


On the wrist of a niña, 

 who found them more precious than I. 


Clipped slowly on her little wrist. 

She then pulled me in for a kiss, 

On the cheek. 


With a hug good-bye, 

and one last wave. 

I rushed to the bus, 

To let out a sigh. 


A tear fell from my eye,  

One, than two, and more. 

This is the memory of our last encounter. 


I hope the Golden Dolphins still dance, 

Watching her growth. 


I hope it now shimmers in the sun, 

 now reminding her of us.
