Remnant Poetry: Keep me close to your heart, My Country, My Love

Why am I always scared walking down your lane?Why do my lips shiver & my heart is full of pain?

Though you are harsh on me, your heart can still embrace and even if I desert you, I long to see your lovely face

Open your arms & hold me close In your arms let me peacefully rest

In your heart keep me

With your eyelids warm me From the fruit of your land feed me

Let your Nile water me

Keep me close to your heart, my love
