You Gave Me Wings

Wings to Fly

However did you come to notice me,
A shy and young, yet fragile castaway?
You, sir, amazed me with your gallantry.
I thought such graciousness had long gone to decay,
But you brought hope into my clouded day.
You gave me wings and taught me how to fly;
You gave me my first view of sun’s gold ray.
Together we ascended to the sky.
And when I broke my wings and could not play,
You mended them, your true love to display.
