I’ve had you in the dark – it’s true!
How could you understand?
That all from the beginning
Is exactly as I’ve planned.
Could I choose, dear one, to smash your heart?
No, it would be cruelest wrong
Instead my plan, to change your heart,
And give it bright new song
I know the dark times frightened you
And filled your heart with dread…
But could I have surprised you
If you’d glanced what was ahead?
“Away… all former things!”
Instead unfold, with heart now bold
My gift to you… these WINGS!
