Edge of a Cloud

I want to sit on the edge of a cloud
and watch the world go by
at a distance
where the feelings that people unleash
can do no harm

Where is the love tonight?
The fires burning bright
within your eyes
that help me break the bonds
that always bring me down
to just survival

and I would drift upon a cloud
with you if you would come
for you are the only one
able to fly in the sky next to me
to drift into eternity in time

as if an angel on high
pulled me up to the sky
once again
even while the abyss waits
and tempts in voices crying out in grief
we are given this relief of flying high

yet I cannot fly for them
they weigh me down
and although I know my feet
must touch the ground
dancing feet upon the earth can fly
and spirit wander misty trails on high

lonely the wait
for a friend who knew
these secrets of the sky so blue
as we open our hands
and once again
I touch the sky

I want to sit on the edge of a cloud
and watch the world go by
distanced from the latitude
of how and what and why

and simply be
with the angels and thee
for all of time . . .
