Spirit by Firebird


Spirit
lost Spirit,
part

of my ancient heart
what
can I give you?

dear one,
hold close in your arms
for me

the joy
of your eyes
first opening

the sun's whisper
lifting the grass
each morning

this is what
I need

lost Spirit
ribbon of snow
drifting
past
stones and shadow
how
will I find you?

dear one,
hold close in your arms
for me
the melody
that makes a deer leap
in spring

the song you sing
when love is
the only language


the weightless light
that floats you
through the sky

and when your arms
can reach no more
and you see
with your own heart
blindly


then
you will surely find me
