Be Back Then…

let the grief, a thorn bird flew so far away
…from the surging burden of yesterday
…… let your heart and soul set to be free
……….and head forth with those smiles in glee

through the morning sun that led us high
…these wings may fly across the distant sky
……on its pick over the hills and over the mountains
………along the crushing rivers and amidst the plains

we can travel a long journey of tangled path
…go middling around with every aftermath
……fusing on the whirling wind that goes stirring
………through every branch and leaves rustling

but when the twilight comes to cover the day
… and the sunlight would just simply shy away
……be back then …where the beginning finds the end
………on the ground of the nest where we shall mend

from where our days may come to last a lifetime
be back then… to sing once more our songs in rhyme
