Fly my beautiful cherub, fly;
God’s gift so held a precious while,
Those cheerful moments that beguile
Glad hearts that never weigh goodbye.
I know the time to go is nigh
As you embark upon that mile,
I hide a heavy heart and smile
As tears well up and sting my eye.
This joyous pain cannot deny
Sweet memories staunch hearts compile
Though it may seem that love’s on trial,
I let you go with but a sigh.
I struggle and begin to cry,
Oh but to have you stay awhile
That love may not endure exile,
I understand, yet still ask why.
