A frame of white,
A light within,
No film or fabric cutting in.
The wonder of a world awash.
The fear of time as it’s running thin.
Once you’re there, you’ll never leave.
It’s got your heart for eternity.
The shroud of gold,
the heaving heart.
It starts with a leap.
Push yourself to take that step,
To make that move, knowing you’ve got nothing at all to lose.
But the weight of the world we’ve built so tall.
It falls away like a hollow dream.
Lift your head, and leap away
Into the glory of another day.
Where the light rules all and the darkness waits.
Where courage and conviction are known by name.
To be without is to have it all.
I’m going now. I’m lifting off.
