Time to Fly

Time to Fly

Through dimming eyes,
only beauty and Glory’s wonder
do I presently see.
My God is coming to take me.

Trinkets in the skies—
jewels of Life’s longings—
sparkle and sway.
And still I beg for one more day.

“If I should die before I wake,
please the Lord my soul to take….”

What else should I pray?
What else should I say?

What do I take of me beyond…?
Beyond here…
Beyond the lovely…
Beyond the beautiful…
past home…
past lives…
past …time…
Am I…?

Goodbye! It’s time to fly!

Artist's Description

Time to Fly

This poem was inspired by and accompanied my artwork of the same title,
Time to Fly. It’s part of a series that I’m releasing during October studying death, which is a part of life— a passage way, I believe.
