Feathers

Feathers, they all scatter Like a whirlwind from the sky Tumbling softly in the dance But why are they so high? I break out my long arms And reach up for the clouds I’m wondering way up there Can she hear my voice now? Tears fall from my eyes And cascade onto my cheeks I’ve been waiting so many years And still you never speak There are questions in my head Have I done something wrong? Are you watching me now? Why are you gone? I listen for beckoning signs I wait for a longing dream But too, too deep inside I hear those quiet screams People never see me The way I am, right here There’s all this love in my heart But there’s also this growing fear Suddenly there’s a calling wind Brushing against my face I know it’s your placid, gentle breath Coming down from space But you were never there were you? You’ve always been down here with me You’ve always been down here with everyone Though I wish for more to see And then the feathers, they all scatter Like a whirlwind from the sky Tumbling softly in a dance But why are they so high?
