Separated

Separated by hate and red tape

She carries her baby alone and afraid

Her love is beyond her reach now

Love travels far but she needs him now

 

Separated by decree and order

He waits forlorn out by the border

Everything he loves on the other side

How can he be beaten and losing his pride

 

Separated by fear and ignorance

They continue this loving, lonely dance

No matter what the circumstance

They keep hoping badly for the chance

 

Not to be separated by arrogance
