taking wing

when we learned that this house 
I had quickly grown to love 
could be ours 
we changed 
from renters to owners 

we settled in deep
and I perhaps may have said
only wild horses could drag me
away from here
now the horses are running
on the prairies I call home
wild in their beauty, and though
they are not dragging me
the flights are booked
and we will soon
be taking wing

much of my heart already 
dwells across the seas
the remainder, I leave here
both broken
and whole
and wholly His
