Time To Fly

At last the time has come, to fly
And leave this arid cage of life,
Time to say goodbye to each other
With one last look and a mute sigh.

Through those empty days together
Through these ugly nights, left alone
After some groping and a groan,
Life has come to this, in the end.

The time has come, to fly and live
For the open sky is waiting
With freedom amid the flying clouds
And peace across the stretch of blue.

After all those twisted nights and days
The time has come, to say, ‘Adieu'.
