“My Soul Has Wings”

Take me to that higher place of peace, where gravity and tides have lost their stay.

Lift me up above the noise and hast of life, to realms of solitude far, far away. 

My soul has wings and longs to arise above.

To dwell in peace with God's Eternal Love.


“We love you mom, and we will miss you"
