I’ve taken wing to soar the skies,
and as I soar above I search for you
scanning the earth through eyes of an eagle
I look for you, for some kind of sign.
I see the truth.
I feel as though I’ve swallowed a brick
My stomach churns
I fight the tears
Time has placed a barrier here.
Holding back with all I have
Strength depleted, nothing more to say,
I muster the courage to turn away.
