She said she wanted to soar
to drift on a warm summer breeze.
How could I refuse such a request?
With grown-up hands a child-like plane I did craft.
The perfect vehicle to carry her anywhere her heart desired
for paper is all that is needed to carry a dream or a spirit.
Someone very dear to me is going through a difficult time right now
She is a Rock Star in my eyes
One of the most amazing people I’ve ever known
She is learning to “Walk” on her own again
It isn’t easy and it will take effort
She will stumble and possibly fall
but she’s strong in her current fragile state
Heaviness is difficult for me (not that it’s about me)
I feel a need to lighten the moment with silliness
So, my dear….
With all that you are going through
know that I’m here
in order to walk
Put one foot in front of the other…..(come on, you know the words)
