For Gibran: Little wing. 

Little wing, 
I remember
another time, of old.

Now you think you have grown.
You do not want, I know
My warm wings, to hold you;
rein you in anymore. 
You think that you soar.

I always believed in freedom.
I undo the jess.
Fly, happy falcon, free and high
While I dissolve like smoke
Slowly, lone, and quietly
Into night’s wood, my home.
