I soared in the sky, Under an angel’s golden wings, To find the things I’ve lost, Leaving me broken, Cocooned in memories.

Find your secret place!

I am searching, For a secret place, Hidden in the sky. For in that secret place, I know I will find, Faces I could only recall, When I dream. In one of my dreams, I have seen a secret place, Hidden in the sky. I roamed above the clouds, I flew with an angel. In that secret place, I found a beloved, Who once said goodbye, Without promise of return.

An angel shaped delight. I know that there is a secret place, Hidden in the sky, Where my memories are alive, But I must remain behind, For I haven’t made enough memories, Here, in this place, Below the sky, Where stars shine down at night.

I soared in the sky, Under an angel’s golden wings, To find the things I’ve lost, Leaving me broken, Cocooned in memories. In that secret place, I asked someone wise, Why was I left behind, To suffer and mourn?

I have searched For a secret place, Hidden in the sky. An angel with golden wings, Showed me the light, In order to find my way, When the ray of dusk, Steals my sight. Christmas candles are lit, Christmas carols are sang, Christmas gifts are opened, There is one Christmas cookie left, 17

Lights of life, and food of memory...
