The tears of my ancestors are falling upon me,
The wail of their cries, echoes in my ear.
The disillusion of hopelessness burns through my eyes;
Their pain, I feel deep inside my heart.
Help me wipe away their tears with knowledge, awareness
And the love that we have for our Garifuna heritage.
Let us give them hope!
That their spirit may never be forgotten.
Let us be the beacon in which their light will shine.
Extending our hands to each other,
Reaching out to our Garifuna Brothers and Sisters.
Great ancestors weep not no more,
Your Garifuna people will persevere!
The unexplainable link that we have towards each other,
Is one that is strong and cannot be easily broken.
So dry those tears my great ancestors!
Weep not, Weep not, Weep not no more!
