After several trips to Trinidad and Tobago 
I've come to call these islands my 2nd home
Some people wouldn't think of visiting 
Due to the current economic situation 
Coupled with the rising crime rates
But honestly; don't let that deter you
Cuz when you come to visit
I guarantee you'll fall in love with Trinidad and Tobago
And then you mus' come back again
The people, the music, the food & the atmosphere 
So when you get that call on Thursday night
And your love from 'Bago 
Is calling n begging ya 'to just come back'
A few nights at the Radisson in Port of Spain 
Is just what the Dr ordered
My flight arrived early 
I waited for him to touch down from 'Bago
We made our way to the Radisson at 4 PM
We checked in ... we settled & sat by the pool
With individual cabanas all cozy with pillows 
It took him less than 5 minutes to fall asleep
Our friends came to fetch us later on
Up the street we walked to the port
It was late & dark but who cares?
We all limed together until the wee hours
No one bothered our intimate group of seven
We slept well that night in the comfy bed
Snuggled under the duvet covers
Until it was time for breakfast
We arrived to a good morning Mr and Mrs Roberts 
To which we both giggled out loud
Not yet, but soon he says
With a twinkle in his eye
But I love how that sounds
Can you say it again tomorrow?
When we come for breakfast
The array of food that was offered
Reminded me of Cuba
Omelettes any way you like 'em
Made to order & prepared on the spot
There were so many Trinidad and Tobago breakfast options
We left stuffed every day
There was a day in the haste of catch'n a taxi
That we left an important bag behind
Completely oblivious until much later
When we checked with security 
They had tucked it away cuz they knew it was ours
It's those extra little touches that I NEVER forget
You call us by our proper names
We're not just any old guest
Each & every time we pass by the desk
All of you wave & greet us with a smile
Thank you for welcoming me to Port of Spain 
For keeping us safe while we slept
Thank you for the great customer service 
I can't wait to come back again!
