Free to Fly

Cloak of darkness upon sagging shoulders

Hiding wings of stainless steel

Of a soul lost in the night

With no beginning

No end in sight

-----------------

You reached out

Took my hand in yours

And when I looked upon you

I saw you wore a cloak of black as well

Hiding wings of snowy white

--------------------

Hand desperately gripping yours

I followed you as we fought our way

Out of the dark

Into the Light

That is Love, Joy,

Truth

-------------------

As I stood in the Light

My black cloak still resting

Upon my shoulders

You Touched me gently

A broken smile upon your face

--------------------

I smiled back

Tears within my eyes

As you gently slipped the cloak

From my shoulders

------------------------

Steel feathers cut through the air

Blowing the hair back from our faces

Pulling the cloak off of you as well

-----------------------

As one

Wings of Steel

Wings of White

Spread wide in

The early morning

Light

------------------

Taking your hand

Eyes towards the bluest sky

Our wings beat the air

Soaring once more

-------------------

Two Fallen Angels

Free once more

To Fly.
