Once I was hidden within myself
surrounded by my shell.
My vision limited, my movement confined,
unable to chip away at my fragile barriers.

You stood outside my self made prison
and saw my spirit inside.
With gentle patience you reached to me
and slowly broke the boundaries away.

My wings were laden with feathers too
heavy to spread and catch the wind.
You helped me stretch them to the
sun and cast off their cumbersome burden.

Flight did not come easy.
There were many setbacks and failures.
With each, you lifted me gently up
and urged me to try again.

Soon I was able to glide in the sky
but always by your side.
But you saw that I must catch the winds alone
and quietly guided me to that journey.

The wind often faltered and I was unsure
but still you pointed me on
until I could soar with ease and grace
even when I didnít see I was doing so.

Seeing me as you knew I could be
you then showed your wisdom
and taught me again what I did not know.
That I had healed and emerged on my own.

And so with wisdom I could not see
you set me on yet another course.
You taught me to soar, set me to my flight
and then gave me freedom to fly.
