To Fly....

and they took up wings to fly.

Please, don’t cry for me,
You don’t need to shed a tear,
Just put those tears in a bottle then set it free,
And let it sail to the nearest ocean far away.

Please, don’t cry,
For each tear are the glorious memories
Of you, my darling daughter and me,
And from the distance you’ ll hear Moonlight Sonnet.

Don’t forget me and keep me in your memory,
The good and the bad that know best,
And keep us in your dreams as you rest,
As you lay your head on that pillow of love.

Sweet dreams to you
As we fly away to our distant home far away
Keep us in your thoughts every day,
Good night and sweet dreams.

...and they took up wings to fly.

In memory of Kobe and his daughter
