Let go…

As my eyes fell
Upon your soul
From far away
And yet so close
I wanted to keep you

When your wings showed me
How to fly
And your humble beauty
And undefeated trials
I wanted to keep you

When you flew away
Leaving an empty spot
I searched branches
In vain I sought
I wanted to keep you

Your mere sight
In a few days gap
Gave me hope to cherish
That you will be back
I wanted to keep you

But you flew again
And higher and further
And away and far
Distance was a hurdle
I wanted to keep you

I wanted to cage you
I wanted to capture the hues
I wanted to trap that beauty
I wanted to hold you close
I wanted to keep you

But I didn’t
Because beauty enslaved
And freedom encaptured
Can never speak of the love
I wanted to keep…

…so I let you go

And keep the love I sowed
To perhaps reap you
In the trees that grow
And the birds that perch
upon its soul.
