I want to take up residence
on the hearth of your heart strings
On fingertips frozen by bitter
they thaw with gentle ease as they trace your lines
You are a natural wonder
Grant me citizenship in your country
where they know your love.
I will fight in your wars and protect all
that is you.
Let me call you home
I will swear fealty to the nation of you
go to the trenches for you
wave your flag high
and wear your colors on my sleeve
