A Duet On Wings

Together at last
they soar so very high
bounded together
with each other's promises

So safe is she
in his arms at very last
they live with their
triumph over the world

But soon the moment ends
as the violin stops its trill
the perfect harmony fades
and the music ceases to play
They are separated once again
A riff of a distance apart

They know they aren't perfect
they know they can't lie
but someday they'll live
someday they'll be
together and always
a duet on wings
