I Can Fly

Love is in your eyes, sitting silent by my side
Going on, holding hands, walking through the night
Hold me up, hold me tight, lift me up to touch the sky
Teaching me to love with heart, helping me open my mind

I can fly, I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine, till the end of the time
Believe that I can fly, I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine, the heaven in the sky

Stars in the sky, wishing once upon a time
Give me love, make me smile till the end of life
Hold me up, hold me tight, lift me up to touch the sky
Teaching me to love with heart, helping me open my mind

Can't you believe that you've lighted up my way
No matter how thorny my path, I'll never lose my faith
See me fly, I'm proud that I can fly up so high
Show you the best of mine till the end of the time
Believe that I can fly, I'm singing in the sky
Show you the best of mine, the heaven in the sky

Nothing can stop me
Spreading my wings... so wide

A song I once heard as a teenager has surprisingly been the forecast of my life journey. This morning, when the distant yet familiar melody which has been buried in the depth of my memory resurfaces itself, it brings me much joyful tears. It is exactly at this uneventful moment, I have come to accept my past. I know that no one else in this world could have done any better than I have for myself if given the same circumstances. I am proud of the little Annabel I was. “Believe me, I can fly, I am singing in the sky…..”, she still sings along through the heart.

To end on a positive note, I would like to share my latest site-dance work at Bharatiya Temple and wish your day be filled with heavenly joy and blessings!πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ₯³ The link is (in case you can’t open the video via my blog, which happens sometimesπŸ˜…)

  1. A very beautiful share Annabel
    The video was not playing here so I opened YT(and dropped a comment)
    I absolutely love your dance on Dam daara dam daara mast mast( lyrics of the song from the movie Guru)

    1. You are more than kind, my dear friend! It’s an honour to dance at a Hindu temple and I feel resonated with every story in the scripts.

      It makes my heart happy to know that you enjoyed the dance! (the best compliment for a dancer). Much gratitude from your heart to yours!


      1. For a minute I thought you are in india or something. I like how you started your video with a stuti (prayer).
        I am sure you have plans to visit India. I would like to see your dance live on the stage. ☺️

  2. So wide your wings, so high you fly. A bird in dance, across the sky. Love fills your heart, for all to see. The future bright, will shine on thee. You dance with great passion, grace and strength, dear Annabel, and you’re indeed a joy to behold! Your varied and wonderful attire is also made more beautiful with the manner in which you wear it, as you move. And, your videography continues to improve ~ very well done!
