Upon a Lifting Breeze

We will soar
upon a lifting breeze
in sunsetís fading light
we shall find our ease

Do not weep for us
nor regret our passing day
our love lives on in you
you now will find our way

Our spirits live
within the gentle rain
that slakes the thirsty earth
softening all pain

We are mind we are thought
free yes free at last
love is all and all is love
never gone never lost never past

You are the very best of us
our deserving victory
over doubt and fear
a love valedictory

We are not in windstrewn ash
nor unforgiving stone
But in your hearts, your minds
forever still at one

So hold us close my dears
in precious memory
of laughter silliness and joy
a love filled history

We fly now with eagles
defying gravity
carried on the loving wind
ever present ever free

Our farewell like the sun
a momentary pause
before the light returns
and the lone eagle soars
