A thousand moments have I lived
All glistening moments
Those moments led me to you

They prepared me for you
Your eyes that are ready to travel
Your feet adventure ready

You take my hands in yours
Your soft palm against my calloused palm
You didn’t care, you just lead the way

You take me on a different kind of journey
A journey rocky, but we find a way to peace
Your beauty always  shines

I can’t believe I helped create you
That you are part of me
On rare days I see myself in you

I have to set you free,
You have earned your wings
I don’t want to set you free

I do it anyway…
