I Feel Like

I feel like a bird whose wings have been clipped
Unable to fly, life has been ripped
I feel like a boy unable to sprint
Cause he lost his legs in an accident
I feel like a girl afraid to dance
Due to low self esteem she wont give it a chance
I feel like a man who lost his wife
Scared of loving again too afraid of life
I feel like a wife whose husband is gone
She doesn't know how to start over or how to move on
I often feel like I am floating on air
I don't want to come down, I like it up there
I often feel your presence near
I always knew that you were here
My faith in you has kept me grounded
A love like yours is quite unfounded 
No other mans love could ever measure
A love like yours I will always  treasure
I live, laugh and love as hard as I can
For tomorrow is not promised to me or any man.

    Welcome to the site. I know you will like it here. Just correct the wording in your tenth line and everything in this poem will appear admirable. Instead of "She don't know...", you should have "She doesn't know...".
