Listening to every heart
I would if I could, take a touch of black
a bit of white and gray on my back,
feathers and soft down to make me soar,
and then I would ask for one thing more.
I would if I could, take my forever love
and wing with him ever so high above
tenderly calling out to my life’s mate
together in life, then at heaven’s gate.
I would if I could, be this creature
for this lovely bird has a special feature
the geese mate for life, up to heaven’s door
and for a life’s love, I’d not ask anything more.
