Fly

LYRICS

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Celine, Thanks for your nice Music

Celine, Thanks for your nice Music

Celine, I read today the eulogy read by the mother of Noah Pozner, one of the beautiful little children taken from this world on Friday 12/14/2012 at Sandy Hook School, I could not read it without crying and thinking of this wonderful song which was dedicated to your neice.

Here is an except from her eulogy: "Noah, you will not pass through this way again. I can only believe that you were planted on Earth to bloom in heaven. Take flight, my boy. Soar. You now have the wings you always wanted."

I would love if you could re-record this amazing touching and loving song and dedicate it to all of the children who passed at the Sandy Hook School with a slight change in the lyrics as shown below:

Fly, fly little wings
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious ones
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste your breath, don't shed any tears
Your hearts are pure, your souls are free
Be on your way, don't wait for us
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But we won't forget

Fly, fly little wings
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

I would love if this is something you could do and have the net proceeds forwarded to the families of Sandy Hook.

A huge fan!

Approximately a year ago my husband and I received the devastating news that our unborn baby had a tumor in his heart. I was twenty weeks pregnant. After many dr. appointments, our specialists concluded that his tumor was likely due to a genetic disorder called tuburous schlerosis. Because of the nature of the tumor, our specialists were worried that the baby would not make it after birth. Our cardiologist suggested we deliver our baby at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford to ensure that the baby could be treated with the best doctors specialized in the area of cardiac tumors. This implicated leaving our home and two older children for an undefined time. The baby's cardiologist did not give us much hope. However, at birth our baby boy Bradley took his first breath and exceeded the doctor's expectations. Twenty-two days later we were able to bring him home and he got to meet his brothers. We were privileged to have him with us for 7 months and cherished every day we had with him. He was a blessing to us all. His tumor began to diminish and all was well. But on October 24th 2011, our son died of an arrhythmia of the heart. Your beautiful song expresses every thing I feel as I grieve this loss. Thank you for singing this song so beautifully and God bless you for your beautiful angelic voice. Thank you and God bless the writers of this song, for I believe that one of them has lost a precious child as well.

Dear Celine

In 2001 during summer I spent many special moments with my sister Pia and never forget how we listened to your music together sharing headphones laying on the beach. You were Pia's favorite singer and so mine. 4 months later Pia died of cancer, she was only 46 years old, mother of 3 wonderful children. During her funeral we played "Because you loved me". But everytime I listen to "Fly" I cannot help crying. Everytime I listen to your music I remember my dear sister Pia who I loved dearly and will always love. My biggest wish is to one day HAVE THE CHANCE TO THANK YOU IN PERSON, give you a warm hug and a big kiss. I LOVE YOU CELINE! Thanks for being in this world.

It's impossible for me to play this song now and not cry. I have always loved this song and it now has a special meaning to me. My grandpa was very sick his last few months of his life, and one day the doctor said he's refusing to eat and take his pills. So me and my dad knew he was ready to stop fighting and join God. So the last week of my grandpa life my dad and I were at his bedside. I was having a hard time to let go. But I didn't want him to suffer. So I just played this song over and over on my phone. I'll hold his hand and while the headphones were playing this song in my ears. Every night when we left I'd kiss him and whisper "fly grandpa fly" into his ear. I know he's in a better place. Someday I'll fly to see him again.

Love you, Celine, Rene, Rene-Charles, Nelson,and Eddy <3<3<3<3<3

I lost my nephew to menigitis. He was just 9 yrs old. Listening to this song gives me hope and it makes me somehow believe that Alex is in a better place. Thank you Celine for such a beautiful song.

I just lost my sister to Cystic Fibrosis, which is what Celine's niece passed away from. This song is so special to me and my family.

When I first heard this song, I did not know it was a tribute to Celine's niece but it struck a deep chord with me as I was inconsolable at one particular moment over matters of the heart and it uplifted me. I just found it strange that I could interpret the song this way.. But it worked for me!

I have lost many friends to AIDS, and have been with several of them as they left to a better place. Although it is sad to see friends go, there is comfort in knowing they who leave this planet suffer no more. This song is what letting go is all about.

This is song is so peaceful, it's about letting go of all the pain and suffering in the world and going to a better place. It's so difficult to say goodbye, but there's a better place to go to and we have to take comfort in that.

Fly reminds me of my sister. She died in a car accident 8 years ago. I hope that as Celine sings this, this is the way it was for my sister. She was so loving and caring and put others before her. I would want her to be at peace and where it is perfect. Thank you for this song, it sets a peace in my heart and of course tears in my eyes, but it is truly perfect.

The first time I heard this song, I cried. It took me back to a time long ago. I lost my 2 year old daughter due to complications from a birth defect. It is exactly what I would want to say to her if she were here now.

As a funeral director, it is emotionally difficult to help a family that has experienced the death of a child. "Fly" is the perfect song for a child's funeral and I have suggested it to families as a musical choice for the past 8 years. Every family has asked me how to obtain a copy. Celine, I thank you on behalf of those that I have served, for helping make their day a little brighter.

About four months ago a good friend of mine died of cancer. She was oly 15 years old. The weird thing was that I was listening to the meaning of this song the night she died and now this song will always be dedicated to her always and forever.

This song reminds me of a friend of mine who passed away in a fire back in August 2002. She was too beautiful for this world, her heart was pure, and I will always hold her memory bittersweet until the day that she and I meet again. God Bless Katina. (August 5, 2002)

A real good friend of mine died in a car wreck a few months ago. Everytime I hear this song, I know that he is near and watching over me and my friends. This song comforts me, and lets me know that he is in a much better place. He will always hold a special place in my heart. I Miss You And Love You Gabriel!

One of my friends passed away recently. Everyone that knew her loved her - she was one of the kindest people I have ever met. She loved to teach others, and to share her love. Her passion will remain in our hearts forever and she will never be forgotten. I love you Liz!

My sister died just a few days ago. She was murdered in a terrorist attack in Bali. When I hear this song, I think of her. She is beyond this world of suffering now. She has found peace. It's a comforting song.

I lost my six year old daughter in a car accident almost two years ago, and hearing this song lets me know that she is in a better place now. That is the only way I can make it through the day, knowing that we will someday meet again.

My daughter passed away in 1994. This song says everything I wish I could have said to her before she passed away. Her courage was beyond belief, and this song helped me realize she is in a better place. Thank you.

Our daughter, Nikki, passed away at 8 months from Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. A few days prior to her Prayer Service my nephew told me about Celine's song, "Fly". We went out and bought the CD and instantly when I heard this song we knew we had to play it at her service. We did and it touched everyone that heard it. This song will always have a special place in our hearts. Even though i have tears every time I hear it. It makes me remember how special and beautiful Nikki was.

After a two year battle with cancer, our youngest son of only 3 years, died on December 22, 1999. We chose your song 'Fly' to end the funeral ceromony. Nothing could have described him better than your song.

This song was placed into a memorial video of my grandmother. I'll always associate this song with the only grandmother I knew. It perfectly captures her gentle beauty, which I will always remember.

My daughter Amanda was two years old when she passed away from heart complications in 1997. It was a few months after she passed away that I was watching Elizabeth Manley skate and she played this song in the background. I was in tears that entire programme. This song was expressing everything that I was feeling but could not say. My daughter was so precious, and I felt so blessed to have had a chance to get to know her, if only for a little while. Celine Dion has such a distinctive voice and I just love her music. I wish her and her family much happiness for years to come.

The song itself is beautiful, but it is particularly poignant to me because earlier this year I lost my daughter. She was my first child and she died, aged 6 weeks. She spent her entire life in the hospital because she was 14 weeks premature and suffered many problems. She was so beautiful and so strong, but finally she just couldn't hold on any more. When she died, I wanted to die also. My only consolation was that she wouldn't have to stay in this world and suffer endlessly. I miss her so much.

A real good friend of mine died. Hearing this song it convinced me he's in a good place and even though I cannot touch him he will always be alive in my memories and heart!
