I wanted to fly
Like those birds in the sky
Wings spread
and with you nigh
 
And then came lightning and thunder
The nest got shattered
and the dreams got battered
Why can't I fly ?
I thought with a sigh
 
Time waits for none
The wings got clipped, and so were the feathers
I kept smiling for sake of others.
The heart got numb and I listened to my head
And no wonder, it always paid.
Life fell in place
Accolades, applause - I often won the race.
 
In the darkness of the solitary mind
I dare to look behind.
And seeing you nigh
Once more -
I want to fly
Like those birds in the sky.
