Unbind me

Unbind your love
that ties me down
strip it from me
as winter does
the leaves of the tree
leave me free
my branches reaching
toward a new day
a new life
clear of the dark
into the light
I am beseeching

Give me wings
as of the bird
to soar upon each
breath of air
carrying me further
your touch
no longer can reach
your voice
cannot carry there
your glance
no longer
will meet my own
unbind the ties
of your love
this of you
I beseech
