Memory of Today

Each moment I hold on to light

Letting go and holding tight

Packing memories of today

With open wings for flight

I can’t lift off the ground

With all the ballast that I found

Cutting loose

Cutting loose

I let the moments pass me by

The memories fading as they form

Shapes in clouds and then they’re gone

What sweet impression had you left

Cut by cruelty I wept

A freedom only sought by daydreams

Ephemeral bargains never kept

One more tie to loosen

Ruffled feathers smoothed

The sky is always waiting

Always wanting me to choose

I soar above it all

Pain and love and strife

I look down to watch you

In the distance

Standing by the rope that’s cut

I watch you sheath your knife
