My Secret has beautiful wings, a birthday song for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller. @RealNickiAycox #song #lyrics

My name is Tracy Miller. I founded Arlene Miller Creative Writing in memory of my mother Arlene Miller (August 24, 1924-May 10, 2005) to recognize & support all forms of creative expression.

*********

Last year, my first published poetry book was written in honor of Nicki Aycox for her birthday. This book was titled “My Secret has beautiful wings: a collection of poetry for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller. I give Nicki tremendous credit because she was there for me on so many occasions as I walked on my writing journey. She listened. She encouraged. She supported me. Nicki has a creative heart, but more importantly, she has a compassionate and kind heart, that is a welcome source of hope & inspiration as we confront these trying times in which we find ourselves.

I remain forever grateful to Nicki!

May 26th is Nicki Aycox’s birthday. I wrote her a new song, “My Secret has beautiful wings”, to celebrate.

You’re very special to so many people, Nicki. Please always know that your secret has beautiful wings. Please always allow your heart to soar.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

My Secret has beautiful wings, a birthday song for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller. @RealNickiAycox #song #lyrics

Every little girl wants to be a princess,
Of her own fairy tale,
Yet, instead of that happy ever after,
Why must sorrow seem to prevail?

We can’t ever be perfect,
Because life is no fairytale,
Because life is a process,
We can rise after we fail.

Do you want to know my secret?
How do I survive the pain?
Awash in sprinkles of hope,
The beauty of Charcoal Rain.

My Secret has beautiful wings,
From a cage I choose to fly,
To soar above my sorrow,
To bid heartache goodbye.

I will never say I’m sorry,
When I choose to be me,
Because that is how I find my joy,
That rainbow I will see.

I am the princess of my story,
The lyrics my heart will write,
I live in a Red Velvet Room,
A beauty of much delight.

Do you want to know my secret?
How do I survive the pain?
Awash in sprinkles of hope,
The beauty of Charcoal Rain.
