Can she fly away but leave her troubles behind?
What is the distance from here to there?
And just where is There, that place of Earths peace,
Does it even exist when her mind travels with?
If just for some time, to leave her life for a while
To empty her soul burdened, with not just past,
But burdened with future as well
For rebirth of her spirit, if she could only go
Freedom to rise, not with the sun,
Nor sleep, as on the horizon it sets
A heavenly body encapsulated and liberated,
Living once There, timeless
If only the chance, to go to her There,
She knows its colors, sounds,
Its smell and tranquility
She has seen it, in her vision,
It does exist,
A meditated place that she goes to each day
And as she sets her eyes through the open air, up towards the heavens,
Birds migrating south, jet trails crossing,
Clouds forming, and dissipating,
Tears of destination fill her eyes
For only too, if she could fly
