I Believe....

Treading the tender grass, beneath my feet,
The moist cool breeze playing across my face,
Today, all inhibitions, every memory, I intend to lose,
As I climb this knoll, I feel myself,
Rising out, over the void, finding footholds,
Inching closer towards light,
It seems, that familiar burden of hurt,
Has slipped off, melted away in the darkness,
As I raise my eyes to the starry night above,
Every sparkle seems new, divine,
The clouds woven, into mesmeric paterns,
Suddenly part, as a winged angel plays hide and seek,
A faint whisper of feathers, I hear,
Behind a wispy curtain of a distant cloud,
A shimmer of moonlight, glinting,
A translucent shudder, I spy,
Of your wings, as you flit, free, innocent,
Glide through those willowy clouds,
Emerging in a puff of snow white haze,
You look down at me, raise your hand in a wave,
Astounded, I stand, mouth agape at the vista,
Surely, a mirage, this is, but seems,
So real, lucid,
And then you glide down, beckoning me, to join you,
I raise my arms, and suddenly, my feet leave the ground,
I strain to catch a glimpse of you,
A blurred face is all I see,
And then I descend back to the ground,
Savouring the sensation, of being suspended,
Between, heaven and earth, hanging in nothingness
And I hear a whisper in my ears,
"Don't lose hope, she's somewhere out there,
She'll fly right into your arms, when its time",
Who are you?
I ask,
I am your destiny, believe in me!
A faint smile, and she dissolves into shimmers,
Infinitely splendid,
Closing my eyes, I feel my soul drain itself,
Of all the pain,
As I finally let go!
