California! Yeah! Okay, I'm
Starry skies, glistening moon,
Could always make my heart sing.
Whispery flowery, feather-soft wind,
Could forever send me into a peaceful dream.
But these were luxuries I had yet found,
For without the guide to these peaceful woods,
Beneath such a beauty in the heavens,
I would be lost.
Wanderer, stray, and a frightened fallen angel,
The solitude you offered was my grace.
Through all the tears, frights, and soars,
You taught me to fly again,
Always the gentle falconer
Handling a broken flier.
You've been there for me
Through all these years,
Always the knight
In a sea of thieves.
You've been there for me,
Always by my pillar
To fall back on,
When the wind knocks me down.
You brought this falcon to dream of skies again
You brought back the warmth to the ice
And I can still manage a little smile,
Wondering how easily you slipped by.
The years haven't taken anything so much
In comparison to you.
From childhood you guided me
Until your falcon rose into the stars again.
We've drifted apart
And yet, somehow, you're still here
In my memory, heart and soul
For the falcon will always remember
The dearest of friends
Who had taught her to fly again
And had always been there.
"Sometimes stars can only be seen in darkness."
"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."
