Destined To Fly ballad

Photo by Anemone Jones

This heartache consumes me; I have nothing left to give
I plead with my soul to forget and forgive

Love’s journey has ended, how can that be
Hearts once tethered are now set free

As the years passed, I was slipping away
My joy, my spirit was held sadly at bay

The woman you know is a mere shadow at best
She cries out for more, do you not hear her request

To live and to love from the depths of her soul
The flame must ignite, the fire must roar

The eagle takes flight in the pristine sky
It is her nature to soar, she is destined to fly

You have dreams of your own, I respect that too
I honour, I support everything that’s you

Let go of the anger, let your mind rest
We loved once, we did and we gave it our best

Your destiny awaits, my journey begins
Our hearts will find peace, love from within
