I saw a bird flying way up high
Gold were its wings in the sun of the morning
Flashing at me as it flew through the sky
She stood all day, nearly into the night
Finally angered that I couldn't catch it
Determined that I would stop it in flight.
Rounded and smoothed by the water's fast flow
It felt so warm and alive in my hand
It was an arrow, my arm was a bow.
It fluttered and it fell on the rocks at my feet
Weeping I left it, the thing that had fallen
Blood stained my hands and tears wet my cheek.
I heard the sound of wings in the air
The room became bathed in a warm, golden glow
I opened my eyes and a woman stood there.
I was your love, I was your friend.
You couldn't stand it that I was so free
Now you will never see me again.
