If I Could Fly - Poem by B.J. Ayers

Oh, if I could only fly,
Through dark gray clouds,
And bright sunlight,
Oh, if I could only fly.

Oh, if I could only fly,
Above the Forests,
And brooks below,
Oh, if I could only fly,

Oh, if I could only fly,
Above the tall peaks,
Of mountains below,
Oh, if I could only fly,

Oh, if I could only fly,
As an eagle with wings
That spread so wide,
Oh, if I could only fly

Oh, if I could only fly,
To smell the flowers,
I see below
Oh, if I could only fly

Oh, if I could only fly,
Through falling of rain,
The beautiful rainbow,
Oh, if I could only fly,

Oh, if I could only fly,
And change the world,
That lies below,
Oh, if I could only fly,

Oh, if I could only fly,
I’d sit on clouds
As angels do,
Oh, if I could only fly

Oh, if I could only fly,
I’d make the world,
A peaceful place,
Oh, if I could only fly,

Oh, if I could only fly,
A world in peace
And harmony,
Oh, if I could only fly.
