and to me he came ...

As I was standing on the mountain,,
feeling lost and all alone,
my friend, the Eagle did appear
and to me did atone,
do not fear and take no fright,
for I am here to guide you.
so climb upon my back
and the forests we will fly through

Flying over rivers and over meadows too,
flying low, flying high is that what we will do,
iI will show you the beauty of flying,
and of the freedom that is yours,
of the journey you can take with me
as your Destiny takes its course

He took me to the dolphins,
to learn to swim and play
and to the orcas who joined us
to all he did but say,
protect this lady, give me your vow,
be there when she needs you
no matter how,
give her the love shes craved for
so long,
let her feel where she belongs...,

In a ball the dolphins protected me,
until I was ready to learn to swim,
under the orcas I could but see
and feel their joyous grin,
so swim we did and much did play,
until he arrived at the end of the day,
to take me again on this back that I knew,
and away again to the mountain we flew

Day by day he taught me how to fly,
he taught me how to trust,
sometimes held in his talons,
sometimes under his breast,
and then he d let me go ..
screaming,I would start to fall,
frightened was I each time,
but all i had to do, was call

We did this so, so many times,
each time, with a little more height,
he d soar in the sky,then drop me
and I would scream with less fright,
Oh many times did I falter,
so many times did I fall,
and always there to catch me,
was my eagle standing tall

He was there each and every second
until I finally learnt to fly,
and then again he took me,
for the journey in the sky,
side by side we flew,
over forests, rivers and sea,
certain of his protection,
it was then I could finally BE

Showing me freedom and Love
that is so rightfully mine,
and the chance that must be taken
for a Life that is so Divine,
showing me the beauty of friendship,
of holding each other true,
loving and caring for each other,
is what we need to do

Then one day he was no longer there,
although call I did but do,
twas time for the flight on my own,
the test of courage to come through,
to know what is mine and take it,
to know what I have missed for so long,
to understand the journey,
to KNOW and feel where I belong....

It was there, all alone in the sky,
that I truly did, learn to fly .................
