 Reflections of My Heart

With Wings Spread  ღ KKD ღ

With Wings Spread

For oh so long
the wings have been safe at her side
never daring to spread
not able to soar and fly

The heart with in this Angel on earth
is as pure as the finest gold
yet with in this cage the spirit is held prisoner
if the truth were to be told

To those who failed to see
what a precious gem they had
will now have not the sparkle
and for them I feel quite sad

For one to not appreciate
what is truly freely given
is a crime against love and passion
and from what loneliness is driven

This imprisoned angel
gives with no return
and to those who have taken
the lonely night oil will burn

But now the door of this gilded cage
swings open free and wide
she leans slightly forward
with wings spread she begins to fly

Fly my dear angel
with happiness and beauty
I can now depart
with out any worry...
