Broken Wing
I sat beside you in the night, I wrapped your broken wing. I wheeled your song out into the light when you were much too weak to sing. I held your dreams safe in my mind in the deep cradle of my own imagining. I brought you once a single rose; I laid it on your bed. The petals fell upon your clothes tho' you could not lift up your head. Between a dream and the falling rain, this is what I thought you said: the spirit is a restless bird that listens while the children sing; (watches while the children sleep) and love is a (such a) simple word, but oh! the promises it brings. (the mysteries it keeps). So now before another wind comes to blow your dreams apart; take the time.... the time to fly, ------my heart.
