A story of growth and love


In the dawn of the morning I watched the skies

And beheld the Sun and watched it rise,

The fiery hues and sapphire dyes

Were pure amazement to my young tender eyes.


And as the dawn grew, I did so too,

And I stretched out my wings, as all young ones do,

up into the satiny cloud tops I flew,

Searching for something, so fresh and new.


I followed no path and wandered so long

And had no direction til’ I heard your song

A melody so pure, true and strong

I knew my in heart it could never be wrong


We flew off together in the midday sun

Over the plains where the wide rivers run

Riding the wind with free abandon

and singing such songs as have been never sung.


In joy we soared without fear

I never felt pain with you so near

Forever in my heart I held you dear

with never a reason to shed but a tear.


I found in you the most joyous of things

Love and devotion and all that it brings

From the moment I saw you,

you pulled my heart strings

and we never regretted or sorrowed it seems.


Together in love we traveled the land

Flying over the forests and desert sands

We followed the sun, and laughed hand in hand

Making our music, a right happy band.


But as the sun set, I flew in the sight

Of a man with a gun and his terrible might

The report of the shot filled you with fright

And you screamed to the darkness as I fell from the light.


The darkness descends as the Sun drops away

And the cold of the night forever holds sway

But know that my love for you ever will stay

And the coming of dawn will bring a new day.
