return flight


she found me weeping
on the river rock
my breathing shallow
my vision focusing
on distant memories
of an endless sky

i had no recollection
of the terrible beating
my body had taken
had barely remembered
how she lifted me up
and carried me away

she used her gifts
to mend my lonely heart
and tattered wings
restoring my will
to take to the sky
and find my way home

courage


what heart is broken
seeks out to find
a remedy certain
to forget past times

how sad the memory
painful to the heart
broken yet breathing
forever on guard

time is of essence
nothing stands still
a heart once broken
desires to rebuild
