Once Upon a Nation........

She walked into the mist wrapped
only in a flag .....nothing underneath
But her beauty shining therein the movments
I couldn't begin to breathe

We all loved her didn't we .......jousting for
her approval each of us a fool
She ....she could make her choice easily
and you think the man will rule

Liberty is a lovely woman .......at once
untouchable and yet in love with us all
But she knows already the answers.......
while you and I stumble and fall

God .......I hope she turns just once as she
leaves and smiles reasuringly to me
Though in itself that means nothing......
am I willing to work to remain free

I will love her ......even if you choose to
exploit her like a fool with something to gain
I beg her now ...turn back for me ......don't
walk away for I remain

Do not give up on our love .....there has
to be that knowing glance
Always ......whenever we part for the hours.....
and  we long for the lasting dance
