I'm No Caged Bird

with you, 
i'm soaring the skies, 
flying to the rhythm
of my own beating heart. 

with you, 
i spread my wings
and let the throaty chirp of yours that i fell in love with
carry me
into the unknown world. 

with you, 
there's a sense of infinity, 
a sense
of lifelong eternity. 

with you, 
i believe in love. 

with you, 
i remember the feeling of loneliness. 

i remember when i was a
caged little bird, 
and when you
set me free.
