I would like
to free you tomorrow
and would like
to see you fly
over the snow-fields, like before.

You, so far away,
even though by now
so near.
And the soul departs
to eternity

I would like
to free your heart
and would like
to stay behind
and pretend to fall.

Because like this you are closer
and can light
my life.
And the soul departs
to eternity.
The soul departs.

Because like this you are closer
and can light
my life.
And the soul departs
to eternity.

And the soul departs
to eternity.

--Andrea Bocelli

    Karen Zimmerman said (8 Jan 2010):

    Thank you all so much! :-) This hawk made it easy for me. I just patiently took a step or two toward him while he looked away, until I was right below him. He was only perched about 4.5' above me, and seemed very curious about my clicking camera. Usually they fly away the moment you look at them.
