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
