Our Eagle

Bald Eagle

You held us dear in your heart
You were our shield even when apart

It seemed as if you could fly on the wings of eagles you wore
We would know our true beauty if only we could see what you adore

You taught us when to walk away and when to hold our own
Gently guiding us by the hand and sometimes over the phone

You may not have always been there when you were wanted
But always there when needed,  protecting us from being haunted

Loved and trusted by so many, how strong you were to us all
No matter what you tried to save us from seeing your fall

You lived your life as you chose
Doing what you must and going as the wind blows

We love always and hope you know
We will miss you and wish you did not have to go
