Fleeing from endless war,
They walk for a thousand miles or more.
To flee horrors that never cease,
They brave stormy seas.
A scared man, his terrified wife and an unborn child.
They walk away,
from a homeland of doom,
Yet border guards tell them
there’s no room
For a scared man, his terrified wife and an unborn child.
So on a cold December night,
Out of mind of out of sight,
In a tent of tarpaulin,
By a candles faint light,
They took shelter,
As her time was near,
A scared man, his terrified wife and their unborn child.
What life can they have when nothing they own,
A long way from home,
To them no gifts of compassion, mercy shown,
To this scared man, his terrified wife and his newborn child.
