A little boy to his mother?
Last night we attended a local school concert and an 11 yr. old boy sang this song as a soloist. I watched his mother in her wheelchair watch him with swelling pride. Just a few days prior she received a visit from hospice and was told she has 6 months or less to live. The angels swirled around as the words flowed from this little boy to his mother.

Do you think that maybe "Morning" and "Day" could refer to Heaven after dying? The word "Pilgrim" suggests a religious traveler. And the idea of a "Water Lily" is a plant that floats on water with "feet"? How odd to put it that way. It has been said that Jesus walked on water. Also, maybe the "feathers" of the "Bird" may refer to angels. Maybe I am way off on this. Does anyone out there know what this poem is really about? Maybe she questions if there is reincarnation. Has anyone out there ever heard of this interpretation?
