I Used To Fly (poem)

Updated on September 4, 2013

Oh friends passing by

High up in the sky

Where I use to fly


Remember the days

The endless parades

Of imagination

Which we would fly through


Such dreams we made true

Raining down on people

Dancing in the shadows

Of things which they could do


But why should they try

When heroes like I

Would come drifting by


Remember the times

Smiles fashioned by us

Enjoying the wine

Of endless applause


All those fancy claws

Of heavy jeweled crowns

With which they lavished me

And caused my vision pause


My ego worked high

To what once flown by

As dreamer did die


Remember the when

Standing amid crowds

Reading passing text

Of another’s day


And to my dismay

They lost their sense of crowns

Turning again toward sky

Which took my tears away

      I have had dreams of flying and it was a tremendous feeling of peace. Your words here are what we do feel once in awhile; as if something has flown off and away from us.

      I used to dream I was flying quite a bit when I was young. I haven't had a flying dream in quite a while. Usually, I was flying to get away from a bad guy, so I guess it's a good thing I no longer fly. Guess the bad guys gave up on me!
