Let Me… (SERIES #4)

let me offer a home to welcome you
rest your weary wings and bid the sky adieu

let me give you the shelter from the cold night
and to clothe your body warm for another flight

let me brush away those frozen morning dew
so you’ll be ready to flap and soar for days anew

let me show you how high you can fly
over the mountain to reach the far end of the sky

let me spread the flowers upon each journey
into the roads untrodden and find your destiny

let me see you through in corners of the world
and conquer the ladder of success unfold

let me bridge your path to where the rainbows are
across the horizon to a place of the glittering star

let me be the glow of its flickering starlight
in abundance to your every heart’s delight

let me be in your life in any way you wanted me
to have you at my side and always in my eyes to see
