Here I Am

here i am… moving along with the flocks
…round and round where everyone goes
…keeping close, wanting to belong…a place to be

here i am…spread my wings and glide
…amongst the many that await the twilight
…and into the deep darkness of my night…i waited

here i am… as i sigh my longing
… with the whispering winds
… and through the cold breeze, a touch… hold me tight

here i am…within your reach
…within your dreams and within your fantasy
…sharing my light and warmth within you… i’m with you

here i am…among the clouds and among the waters
… i cast the shadow of my wings
… to shelter you with my loving heart… i am yours

here i am …to mirror the goodness that you possess
…and feel the comfort of your love and kindness
…all that kindled my heart with the light of pureness… i am blessed

here i am…the refection of your happiness and sorrow
…buried the past to live and exist the joys of tomorrow
…bear only the golden days of yesteryears to borrow…i shall keep

here i am…to savor the sweet caress of the spring waters
… dancing along as it flows with the colorful ray that glitters
… flap my wings that thirst like the strolling spirit of wanderers…i did fly

here i am…simply waiting for you in my days and nights
…in my reflection, it is you that i found in my lonesome sights
…i hold on even in the oblivion of memories, you serve lights…i grip tight
