June 19, 2010   “We Can Fly”

To my readers: This poem has been kept in private for a few years; it was written as a song, but since I have no musical ability whatsoever, I’ll present it as a poem.  Thanks for reading…

We Can Fly

She’s lying here beside me
Staring up at the ceiling fan
Telling me about all her life’s great big plans

I think to myself “Is there room enough for me?”

She makes me feel like I’m flying
Like I’m standing up ten feet tall
The higher I fly, the farther I have to fall

Am I ready to try to love someone again?

I’ve been two times to the altar, and two times before a judge
Each time I left a piece of my life behind
Broke my heart, and nearly broke my mind

I’ve got a lifetime of years behind me
Heaven knows what’s on the way
So I set the alarm to wake me for another day

Am I ready to try and make it once again?

I spent my life spendin’ my time
Spendin’ what I did not earn
Like I had lots of time and lots of money to burn

Now all I want is to spend my life with her

I’ve been two times to the altar
But she makes me want to try
She makes me see I can fly

I’ll live again, I’ll love again, and we can fly.
