“Love's Freedom”
By Eddie Arce

High amongst the mountains in glorious realms afar
We find an ageless castle reaches into the clouds
In it's highest tower, unseeable from the ground
A princess dwells, dreaming of rescue from a lover
Her lonely gaze falls over the cloud covered kingdom
She’s never seen the ground, only mountains in the sky
Her castle is manned by invisible entities
Leaving her trapped in this tower for an ageless time
She can never grow old, only lonelier and cold
As though the heavenly view from her window was life
A world of light and timeless warmth she could call her own
But loneliness overpowers the beauty of sight

Alone in a fortress made entirely of ice
Another Princess dwells, and she's never seen the sky
Locked high within an icicle tower in the night
Her world is always dark, and she's ever so alone
Her astonishing beauty radiates such a light,
Such warmth in her eyes she once nearly melted the ice,
But slowly her heart's dimmed, the once iridescent glow
Became nothing more than a tiny star in her eyes
Her icicle tower rises high into the night
Stopping short underneath the cloud ocean overhead
She feels forever bound to this tower of ice
Leaving her cold in the darkness and watching her breath

But one morning a bird reached the Princess of the Skies
The Princess wept as its song drew nearer to her ears
Suddenly it flew into her room and circled twice
Then halted and landed by her picturesque figure
The bird began to sing, the Princess could understand
As though each note the bird sang was a word and command
She listened for hours smiling as the bird would sing
Of the world she thought only existed in her dreams
But then the bird sang of a great fortress made of ice
And told her of the beautiful Princess of the Night
The Princess of the Skies cried out loud before she laughed
For she knew there was another like her who was trapped
So she sang to the bird and gave it a swift message
To deliver to the Princess of Night and ice age

The Princess of the Night, returned a song in reply
Carrying the message the bird flew into the skies
And each day and night our hero bird would deliver
A song and message from the sender to the receiver
For months the two Princesses learned of each other
The mystic castles they dwelled in, the lands ungoverned
Slowly through every message delivered each way
Their loneliness ceased, together they breathed life again

They sang of their dreams and explored life-long passions
Desires and visions, futures and whispered pastimes
But above of all they sang of acquiring freedom
What life and love would be like outside the kingdom
The Princess of the Night, gazed at her crystal moon
Dreaming of the Princess of the Skies and her world
And love began to find its way into her room
Slowly her eyes began to shimmer in return

The bird was growing weak, from traveling for so long
Every day and night, returning the other's song
As the bird again visited the Princess of the Night
It hadn't strength to deliver her message through flight
Its body and wings had grown thin, its eyes glistened
As if it knew something it had failed to mention
But the bird had delivered all they intended
But it also had heard their innermost wishes
For whenever they'd think alone the bird would listen
Delivering each song and knowing all was its reason
The Princess of the night drew the bird in her arms
And told the bird everything she felt all along
How she loved the other Princess who dwelled in the sky
And for her would she give her heart's love to be inscribed

The bird sang and told her the other Princess felt the same
And each passing minute her love in song she would proclaim
With that the bird died and disappeared and without a sound
Love's radiance returns to the Princess here and now
Her eyes then shimmered and her iridescent glow
Returned from where it had gone when she felt alone
Love so old yet so refined cast fate a song that night
She lifted both her hands before singing one last time
As thousands of birds circled her icicle tower
Then slowly the fortress began to melt and lower
Her shimmering eyes radiated warmth and life
The birds circled awaiting the source of the light

She's carried away by this flock of singing birds
Who whisk her into the night, headed for the skies
Then suddenly she screams as she's enveloped in light
Darkness disappears as she reaches this sunny world
Off in the distance she sees the ancient castle
The birds sing out loud as they soar above the clouds
She lies on their backs as they carry her in the air
A magic carpet made of birds from the wild

She reaches the tower of the Princess of the skies
The moments freeze; their eyes first meet
Then the Princess of the skies reaches her hand out
The two interlock their fingers as the birds sing
As they embrace, on this moving flock of ethereal song
Neither will look back at the castle as they leave
Both beauties hold tightly the other in their arms
For freedom as last, together they finally breathe
Then into the clouded horizon they all fly
Their destination unknown, but the birds seem to know
With love's kiss two lives are freed, and love forever together they’ll hold
