I have always loved you
I have loved you from before the time
I met you,
I dreamt of you as light striking sky,
wisdom in flight,
and I dreamed again before I knew you
as my heart, hot bowl of my chest
as you were drawn to me,
and I to you.
I have loved you more than my own flight,
my own freedom,
my own sky.
I have loved you more than the wind,
I have loved you deeply
in my arms
through the day, the night,
Our bright promise of youth
hatched and fledged
year after glorious year.
I still feel your warm body
next to mine,
listening to the crackling song.
My gifts, strewn across forever,
for you, my love.
Yes, I have loved you
and always will love you
for father eagle of Norfolk
for his family
and for the final flight of his mate
