A flight of the Abatross

it starts as a baby alone
 then in no time it will roam
 searching for little minnows in its beak
 hunting and gathering
 in time spreading its wings
 taking flight at night to a distant land
 let me be the first to help you understand
 beautiful in it's colorization
 a break on a vacation
 flying ever higher then ever before

there a love does know
 how long of the flight of the Albatross
 this is no tragic loss
 drifting along the ocean shore flow
 lest i implore another opened door
 a loving bird as if you haven't heard
 higher and higher straight up will fly
 watch the Albatross soaring to ever new heights.
 forget the night and the day is far spent
