The seconds crawl by,
Slowly, painfully, each one
deathly silent in its
On this heavenly island
Beneath the pale blue sky,
Where the Almighty king
Inscribes His words in the book
I patiently await my time
Hoping and wishing….to fly.
For my wings are growing heavy,
And I fear that I shall soon perish;
For some, it was a song;
Others, a lullaby.
And for a lucky few,
The soft kiss of a lovers eyes.
As for me, I indeed know what shall set me free:
It is the heavenly beauty that adorns you, my lady,
The only one that my eyes shall ever see.
