Beyond The Physical

I am a child of light"
Rising above the darkness
Striving to push beyond my constraints
Craving gossamer wings
I wish to soar over mountain tops
Whisper among the stars
Travel at the speed of light

I live in a hidden place 
Well beyond myself
A part of an eternal dance
Sometimes only I hear the notes

I'm in this body for a while
Yet it will not hold me long
It is but an instrument 
A way to play my song

I am more not less
Look into my eyes you will see
Beyond the physical 
My temporary reality
For my friend 
Just like you
My moments are few
Yet that is not true
We are "creatures of light"



"Creatures of Light" is a song title by Composer Robert Neufeld
After listening to his song I was moved to write this poem.
I hope you like it Robert.
