To America, Love and Gratitude

Born from the Operation Babylift

Yesterday you were an orphan,
The child of war.
A world of peace awaited you--
Miss Liberty and her country afar.

Today you are an American
Your dreams have come true
You are the bell of Freedom:
Happiness is there for all to pursue.

Let your heart sing a song of gratitude
In memory of those who never made it home:
American sons and daughters,
Operation Babylift children perished in burn.

May God keep you safe,
This country is always blessed
So are we, my friends,
Share your love and live life to the fullest...
