I Remember When I Could Fly

I Remember…… When I Could Fly

(music fills the breaks....please sing!)

I remember…
’till I was almost 25       those special nights
When I knew I could fly               not just pretending
                                                                          I’m sailing the skies
I remember                        when I could fly

I knew the sequence
When my countdown hushed to one            the gates would open
                                                         And my night flight had begun
Across my memories
                                                 My journey blocked the Sun                              
touchdown was real
                          I met the Chosen One
I remember                         when I could fly

I look back now
                           And I remember the wind             that sweet uplifting
                                                         Of a very special friend
He never leaves me        though human I've become
     sending me angels                         when goodness I flee from
I remember                        when I could fly

As I grow older
                                           I dream about those nights
                          Can’t seem to sequence                       no countdown in sight
      I pray my memories                                won't leave me in the night
                    'till I fold my wings                                             and drift into the light
I remember                        when I could fly

                           I remember

                                                      ...when I could fly

    This is another fresh and unique poem that you have written here Jimbo. I really dig the experimentation and structure....it makes the premise really come alive. Awesome! Chris.
