Don't Forget


We love you, want you back with us.
A family torn apart on a wim of
no proof.

The law stands apart from the very
laws their suppose to protect.

Injustice has been done to a lot
of us.
But we will not give up, we will
fight to keep families together.

Stop the suffering of little children, they
be with their loved ones.

Our little girls, we are fighting
for you, want you home with us.

Coming home soon.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
