A tear on this feather

I saw the sky shine so brightly today.
I thought of the glint in your eye when you smiled at me.
Oh yes, I feel you up there.
But, I am not yet polished to deserve your reflection.

I dropped a tear on this feather today.
I thought of all the times we could have escaped our fate.
Oh yes, we have taken flight.
But, my soul is still tied you.

I felt the wind blow today.
I saw our life lofting adrift.
Oh yes, we are displaced.
But, I will weather this sail until I return to you.

I set a prayer on this feather today.
I thought of all the times we had tempted our fate.
Oh yes, this prayer disperse.
But, let me dream of you one more night.

This is simply beautiful -- poignant and touching. It made me misty-eyed. Amie, you are an amazing poet.

What a symbol, loved it. I love pictures like the water droplet close up. Everything you write makes my tear up and go aww.

Love ya, Mom

Oops, that was me that deleted the comment, Auntie. Mom bean's picture came up instead of mine. I came by to see your feather. Pretty cool.
