Birds and Paper Airplanes

Birds and Paper Airplanes

In a world of sky
We are born birds
And paper airplanes

He drifted upon the breeze
Floating aimlessly
Occasionally fluttering
Changing his coarse as he soared amongst the clouds
Ignoring the ground
Chasing the unknown

In a world of sky
We are born birds
And paper airplanes

Her wings had been crumpled and bent
Too many times to count
And still she wished to fly
So she did
Smoothing her heart
Waiting for just the right breeze

In a world of sky
We are born birds
And paper airplanes

They both grazed the heavens
The tips of their wings
Burnt by the sun
Longing for something
Hers was to reveal her beginning
And his was to find his hope

In a world of sky
We are born birds
And paper airplanes

They now glide
Together
Across the bright blue backdrop
Peppered by bright white clouds
Hoping to discover tomorrow
And the adventures it will bring

In a world of sky
We are born birds
And paper airplanes
