In Most Migrants - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though their loyalties to their families and new friends in their new country belong
In most migrants the love of the homeland is strong
Nostalgia dies hard as the wise one does say
With most migrants anyhow it is this way
For different reasons people do migrate
But the national day of celebrations in their homeland in their new country they celebrate
And though some migrants never return to their homeland again
The strong love of first home in them does remain
And surely will until the day they do die
Migrants who tell you differently to their true thoughts only lie
For to love one's first homeland is a natural thing
Of their love of country the balladeer sing
I have seen migrants with tears in their eyes listening to songs of their homeland
Their love for their country one can understand.
