Fly Higher - Poem by Kathryn Brookins

Take my hand and lead me away,
to some place far off where I can stay.
Let me turn my tear stained cheeks,
Away and towards the twin peeks.
Walk me there, to safety and security,
where I can be away from all the impurities.
My heart has been shattered and lays on the dirt,
I have dust on my face and rips in my skirt..
I have walked so long on these feet that are sore,
my hair a tangled mess, and my ribbons tore.
I look around me and see devastating blows,
people around me, laying in rows...
I can not believe this happen here, in this place..
please take me away... hide my face.
Wipe away my tears and hold me close...
I could use a happy dose.
Allow me to forget, and to look up high,
let the pain flow out of me as I let out a sigh.
Wrap your wings around me and take me far,
let your love heal my tender scars..
up in the sky we fly higher and still,
I hear the cries from below and feel the cold chill...
hold me closer and take me higher then this,
I promise there is nothing below I will miss...
take me to somewhere I can be merry and free..
A place I can forget this tragedy....
I cry so often my eyes burn...
when will it be my turn?
To take in the beauty and rest on and on,
feel that special feeling, when out of my hand, I feed a fawn.
Let me nestle my face in your shoulder, barried deep..
I no longer wish to look upon, the sows that had been reeped.
Take me away to a place safe and full of love,
I wrap myself in you as you fly higher, and higher yet, into the above.
