oh if I had but wings to fly
to climb, to gaze from up above..
I could not soar to reach the heights
to match such love
the love you keep, within your eyes.
For time I have but little now
how shall I choose from all I see
when life offers so much to me
yet with a price and how
and as I lay down to wait until
upon the leaf that once gave birth to me
all of the life I lived I breathed
will give my wings once more the lift
to soar and in OUR eternal love; lie still.
