Gift of Flight

Set free from my cage, and not feeling my age
I took wing on silent breath of air
Aloft and caught up in a forever dream
I hadn’t a worry or care

Over white mountain peaks, and rivers blue,
Green pastures, and majestic horizons I flew
Never have I known such contentment and love
As I have from unparalleled stations above

Further still I flew, and higher too
My companions, the sun, clouds, and wind
Enveloped in splendor, I suddenly knew
It was a beginning, not an end

Until at last, I came to rest
On a perch too high for eagles to crest
Where my eyes will always look down on you
And my love be the light that sees you through
