In this star-crusted infinite space,
There is just one earth:
One place where life abides.

Of all the beautiful far-off places
In the whole wide world,
I have come to your city.

In this city of meandering roads
Your feet have led you,
To this, my open door.

Pause. Ask yourself why: reason says
I am that one port
You sailed out for long ago.

But if you believe only in chance
Or cold providence,
Then take an unambiguous chance.

I give you my unconditional heart.
Wander never more.
Make this your only home.
