unexpected situation

Little girl you look so scared
Mummy's gone you must grow on your own
Just because your wings have been cut
Doesn't mean you can't fly
Oh little angel
The tears in your eyes
Tell me a thousand stories but not a thousand lies
Breathing like your dying
But I know you've never felt so alive
Please I want to see you smile
But I don't want to be left alone to cry

Precious you sit and look so vacant
Your stares intent could freeze time
The wind swept away your hair
And left your soul to bear
Oh how I could get lost in your eyes
They tell me a thousand stories
Some I wish were little white lies
Inhale the fresh air around you
This makes uncomfortable sense for you
But what scares me the most
Is it makes the most sense for me too

The door has swung 
I can see it closing
But I don't totally mind
The lock can be opened
It can be swung again
Oh little angel
I want to see you fly
Not on the cliff far away
But in my arms soaring high
We'll share a thousand stories
Who cares if they're lies
My breath is growing shorter
But you make me feel so alive
I'd give up anything to see you smile
There's not a day with you you'll see me cry

    Ur words are powerful, they fix an imaginary and potent wing for the little angle to regain her flying prowess... Great!
