For all those who see “home” and all it means Disappear behind them;
For all those who cannot see a home In the days ahead of them;
For all those who dwell in Daily insecurity;

For all those who are weary and Without a safe place to rest their heads;
For all families in migration we pray. May the image of the Holy Family Fleeing oppression stay with us as we enter a New Year,
And stay with us each night as we are blessed With returning to a home. May we also be blessed With compassion for those Still weary, still seeking,
Still with so far to go. —Jane Deren, 2007
