Flying On the Wings of Love

Every time he’d take a look at her

His heart would skip a beat

She was his love and inspiration

Taking him on a flight

Every time they were together

High up in the sky

On the wings of love

She’d wonder how great love could be

Without him she was not whole

When he smiled her

Her heart beat ever faster

There were no better days

Than the ones they spent together

Holding hands

Taking flight

On the wings of love

She was his

He was hers

Love was so very grand

Life never seemed better

The days sparkled and shone

Together they saw all the beauty

That surrounded them

Always walking along

Ten feet in the air

On the wings of love

From sunrise to sunset

Never a moment

When they didn’t think of one another

He’d see her smile

And her eyes sparkled

It made him breathless

When apart

Her dreams were filled with him

Their life forever entwined

Never to part again

Together high above the clouds

On the wings of love

Quiet nights

Kisses of longing and passion

Companionable silences

Candlelight and wine

Holding on forever

One heart beating against another

Taking flight

On and on

Together soaring on the wings of love

You're flying, Gypsy Rose.

Take me up ten feet tall and higher into the firmament of infinity. Let us sing with the hummingbird and the larks in flight.

Strong wings you've got. Chris has a great voice.
