Forty years of waiting
Forty years you’ve known
Hope had never faded
To find family of your own

Wishing to return to 1963
Not to have set sail
To cross the open sea

Excess children shipped away
Good white stock is worth the money
For them never to return from
The land of milk and honey

Believing you were orphaned
Forced to changed your name
A life once full of laughter
Would never be the same


Many years of labour
Feeling empty and alone
You buried all the longing
For a place that you call home


Forty years of waiting
A silence so profound
Now you have the voices
Of the brothers you have found
