Lyrics

The geese pass swiftly overhead
Their song....does not
It lingers and my spirit lifts
As I sit in the growing dusk
Remembering so many gifts

CHORUS:
I cannot fly
I cannot match their song
But for one fleeting moment
My spirit flies along
Oh and I can find
Their freedom in my soul
It warms my weary heart
And that is enough for now
For now

Night mist envelops the valley
Like the gentle embrace
Of old lovers and fond memories
An owl carries on a conversation
That is carried out on the breeze

CHORUS:
I cannot fly
I cannot match his song
But for one fleeting moment
My spirit flies along
Oh and I can find
His freedom in my soul
It warms my weary heart
And that is enough for now
For now

BRIDGE:
Reaching deep inside
Where my melody still resides
I give thanks for the gifts
And for moments such as this

CHORUS:
I cannot fly
I cannot match their songs
But for one fleeting moment
My spirit flies along
Oh and I can find
Some freedom in my soul
It heals my weary heart
And that is enough for now
Yes, that is enough for now
For now
