She Can Fly
John G. Lee AKA Daddums
Based on a dream by J. Lee on 21 June 1996. Inspiration by Barbara, John, Jennifer, and Christie
When Christie was a baby
Home from the hospital in her bed
Dependent upon Mom and Dad
Dad said to Mom "Some day she will fly"
Soon Christie began to crawl
she ventured around the nest under the watchful eye of Mom and Dad
Dad said to Mom " She's just begun to learn to fly"
Later when she began to walk and venture around the nest and yard
Dad said to Mom " She'll fly some day"
Christie ventured out form the nest to start school
To learn how to fly through the world
Dad said to Mom "She's learning to fly"
Christie went to school, soaring high and migrating to ever higher heights
And flew even further from the nest trying her wings and flying high
Dad said to Mom " She can fly, yes she can"
While she venture from the nest, flying high
She met another while in the sky, her future mate, Chris
Now she soared higher than ever in the sky
Dad said to Mom "Look, she can fly, very high with one to guard while flying
With one to share the joys of the sky and the freedom of the wind
Surely time to leave the nest is neigh"
While Mom and Dad would surely like to keep the little bird in the nest
They could not stand to see her wither if they did, so
Dad said to Mom " Watch her fly away from the nest, Watch her soar gloriously through the sky
As she walked down the isle
Like a phoenix rising into the sky so high
She began to soar, and fly, YES SHE DID
With her mate Chris to keep her safe
She can fly away from the nest where even eagles dare to fly
She can fly away from the nest
To heights where we can only guess
DAD SAID TO MOM " I TOLD YOU SHE COULD FLY"
AND FLY SHE DID
With all our love, MOM and DAD
