Clipped Wings

I wanted to climb mountains with you

And hear

‘I love you’

Echo through the valley

I wanted to chase you to the edges of the earth

And then laugh

And peer over the side

And wave at the stars that had slipped below

I wanted to be holding your hand

When sun melted into sea

So we could watch,

In awe

Somehow - through storms and rough waters,

She’d continue to burn

And rise again

You say I clipped your wings,

But you should know –

I always

Wanted us

To fly.
