Soul Flight
As I watch graceful dandelion seeds today
dancing through the sweet air, happy and gay
like music notes bouncing in turquoise sky
I hear a haunting song as they begin to play.

An aria so poignant tears fall from my eyes
thinking of sorrowful times I’ve said good-bye
to those souls I’ve loved, cherished, and adored
as grief fills my hurting heart with a heavy sigh.


I contemplate the mystery of death’s door
why it opens for some, but for others, nor
the music fades as they soar out of my sight
I know I won’t see these tiny pips evermore.


With hope I peer above, see a bright light
as the blue sky fills with tiny puffs of white
flying to the open heavens at lofty heights
the sky opens up, as they bid me good-night.
