What Magic Has Lived Here!

I think about my life
As I am a living
Flying, surging wing of the skies
An accidental eagle
Who discovered his wings
And Who began flying
By accident
Then the earth and all my friends
Grew into small lines and then disappeared
As up I went
And somehow I drifted
Sailed and climbed
Up into the clouds
At times
At times
And became what I could
And dreamt what I might
And did my best to achieve
And what magic happened here!
Booming thunder which crackled the sky
Blinding lighting clattered the human spaces below
I've seen Faraway lands and distant peoples
Who waved to me
From mountains shooting Fire
And Deserts of Ice
I sought my adventure
Across unknown vast expanses
With no guarantees
No promises at all
In search of great treasure
I danced
With Blue-blown clouds
Across 7 continents we turned
We loved
We held
That soft white dance
Across surging oceans
Rising and lapping the many, many lands
We danced over
Green padded valleys
And Charcoal mountains
But Now I see
That my life
This Sail, my living soul's vessel
Is going to rise a while longer
So now I choose
To chart its course
To consider this Epic
And measure the universe
Against my soul
For I know now
That I will only Fly
As a living
Breathing wing of wonder
I live the winged eagle of life's desire
For only
For only so long
But what magic was here!
What incredible shouts of magic lived and died here!
What fire!
What torrents of rain!
What triumphs and disasters!
What joys and sorrows!
That carried me above the world
And smashed me upon the cold, muddy earth
So many times, I cannot count
This place
This life
Oh Death-defying adventure
Oh life of unbelievable feats
I have lived a thousand lives
I have survived the crushing blows
And I am still alive!
What great magic has lived here!
