One Wing

If had but one wing
I would still fly
because you taught me
that anything is possible,
even without knowing why.
If I had just one eye
I would not cry
because I could still see
with the other 
all the wonders of the world
and your smile would still stir
passion, wonder, and awe in me
like a child seeing snow
for the first time in his life
unaware of the cold
or being alone.
If had only one arm
I could still hold you
Upon my lap,
Or one hand left
to caress your cheek,
I would not be weak
nor feel bereft,
because I once held you
Up for the world to see
and knew in my one heart
that you once loved me.
