Only Out of Sight

Those who choose to live so far from home
Are the ones who always must phone
The ones who feel the most alone
Canadians scattered across many lands
Reversing the flow that brought their blood
To the frozen north from scattered lands

At strange times they find
Family always on their mind
Faces and voices of their own kind
Grandfather's smile within the Pyramids
Mother's eyes atop the Himalayas
Sibling's laughter in Venice or Paris

Who is to say what's wrong or right
We who chose exiled flight
Must keep alive a smaller light
Do not forget us, for we remember you
You are always with us in our mind
We are only out of sight
