Fly
Fly, fly little wing, fly beyond imagining.
The softest cloud, the whitest dove, upon the wind of heaven's love.
Past the planets, and the stars leave this lonely world of ours.
Escape the sorrow and the pain and fly again.
Fly. fly precious one, your endless journey has begun.
Take your gentle happiness far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore, there is peace forevermore.
But hold this memory bittersweet, until we meet.
Fly, fly, do not fear, don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free, be on your way, don't wait for me,
Above the universe you'll climb, on beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set, but I won't forget.
Fly, fly little wing, fly. where only angels sing,
Fly away, the time is right, go now, find the light.
In Memory of Madison Ivy Crann-Dicks
