Exile, oh exile, so far, so estranged

Memories of a home so quickly changed

Lonely and wandering, forever exiled away

Praying that one day a refuge may stay

Longing for a home in which to abide

Knowing that a place of belonging we cannot find

Despair enveloping us, morning and night

Yet faith never waivers, our courage blooms bright

Does a home exist, a place of solace and peace

Will a haven of safety and warmth ever cease?

Exile, oh exile, so vexing and cold

Can hope and joy ever hope to unfold?

Channeling resilience, resilience brave

A wonder and beauty in which we can save

A home is not just for the four walls we build

A home is the heart, with love that can be re-filled
