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!
