I Used To Fly
by ashlyn brooke long

I used to fly
with my wings outstretched.
I'd soar so high,
my bliss almost far fetched.

The sky was my canvas,
the color, so blue.
My wings were my brush,
my inspiration was you.

But then one day,
you gave up the fight
to something called Cancer,
and I lost my flight.

Sometimes I wonder
what we might have been,
had you kept your life
but you were swept away with the wind.

Do I regret 'us?'
No, not I. 
I just need
To learn how to fly.
