To Capture a Raven's heart

The capture of a reluctant heart
there was once a man who use to watch a raven fly

day by day he watched her climb

he watched as she dipped her wings way up high

once he even heard her cry

once she flew close enough for him to see the colors in her eyes

and he began to ponder why she cried

because in his eyes her spirit shined

so day by day he watched her fly

'til he begin to hear her the loneliness in her cries as she raced across the skies

so he set out to capture a raven's heart

he knew he would have to be tricky because many had tried and lost

she kept her wings wrapped tight around herself

each day he watched and whispered soft words that she could hear from faraway

each day she circled closer to him

'til his words worked and she stood in front of him

and she asked in a soft breath why do you seek me so

and he answered for love you know

she smiled and answered him so, love is a sword we all know, there has to be more

then she flew

he watched her soar, wanting her heart all the more

each day he watched her soar and dip, trying to find the key that made her tick

he spoke words of love 'til finally she begin to believe

never once did she question his heart you see

so she gave him her own, wrapping him in a love he had never known

she showed him everything she was

she shared her heart and soul

so in secret they loved

a short sweet time that made her think she was a step above

in his arms she knew no pain for he took it and tossed it away

he loved his raven like she never knew

his heart she carried as she flew, together we will be soon

she floats above with his promise in her heart, as each day she waits

each day she cries

each day she wonders why

each day she searches the skies
