Dawn

by Olivia Pintair
 

When dawn moved in we watched the shade
knelt before the lions cage
felt the rain from the willow tree
you helped my soul find me

Somethings are meant to live unknown
or to find you when you’re most alone
the colored birds fly round the well
and there is a truth I’ve learned so well

There is a truth I’ve learned is joy
and I found it in your words and voice.
I found it while shaking rain from trees
and in a beautiful place that set me free

As dawn moved in we watched the moon
as it flew away like a big balloon.
And if we all have to float off too,
know that he who let me fly was you.
