Give Me Wings

Form: Ivorian Sonnet 33

And in all those times I have watched you fly
I’ve never asked the questions how and why
How I wish to find my own set of wings
So I can soar open skies beside you
Then maybe I’d see what the future brings
Invade my heart with love, break down that wall
Too long a prisoner of my own pain
I won’t fight you as you let the bricks fall
And strip me bare of heartbreak’s heavy chain
Release my soul now as destiny sings
And we make love in the rhythm and blue
And in that moment I give you my all
I still don’t ask how, nor do I care why
For I know I’m ready to love again
