First time I look up,
I fell in love with the sky
My heart reaching higher,
The only desire is to fly.
I am a bird flying high and free,
The rain fall from the sky,
A bolt of lightning, I never shy.
A river, in a far off land.
A plethora of pebbles in bed of sand.
The call of wind is in my sail.
To progress to unknown land.
A song, a silence and a whisper make my symphony whole.
