Learning to Fly (On the Way Down)
She was strong enough to make the climb
Even while not feeling like it all the time
Inside, she always believed that she could soar
Though it often took all she had just to take a few steps forward
Something always seemed to knock her to the ground
Still, there was a determination down deep within to be found
A determination to, come what may, hold to the truth within her soul
Despite the many attacks on it and the struggles to remain whole
Each time she fell she simply picked herself back up
Always letting go to leave it all behind, sure enough
Until she stumbled somewhere along the path
Tumbling head over heels and something snapped
This time it seemed she lost all of her grace
Harder than ever before to put the pieces back in place
It was dark but somehow always with a tiny spark of lighting
Little did she know, all she had to do to find it was stop fighting
To gather up those tattered wings once more
Close her eyes, take a leap, and soar
She may never know what is to be in store
Or when the time is right to land ashore
But the heart can fly just as high, unbound
Even when the feet are chained to the ground
I love the lyrics to this song and the instrumental parts.

Sometimes it is not anything tangible, but an act that communicates love best. Take that into consideration when giving from the heart to a loved one. Also, recognize why love offered may not be felt.
