I close my eyes and release my soul,
by Samantha Williams
Its wings stretch out in glory and
With one swift sweep it rises
Into the velvet azure above.
Immersed in the sun-drenched ocean of
Sparkling air, untainted by fear,
Clouds roll off its back like droplets,
Washing away all ties to the earth.
Conveyor of dreams to heaven,
On it soars, ever up towards
The golden nurturing light, provided
That I close my eyes, shut off the world outside
