wings of desire

Can

You see

The planes fly

Destinations

Unknown to many

Lights blink like moving stars

As the large birds disappear

Into the night sky on their way

With anxious travelers wondering

If their journeys will please them in the end

You can scale mountains

You can visit lands beyond

You can float on clouds

Your thoughts have wings of desire

Riding winds of happiness

Inside there’s a dream

Part of you yearning for wings

To fly to the stars

This is where you turn

Throughout the day for a lift

Embrace the power

This dream will free you

As you linger more often

Where happiness lives

One day you’ll vanish

Into an open blue sky

Where others see clouds
