"Fly" as written by and Jean Jacques/galdston Goldman....
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 memory 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

    General CommentI love this song! It's so beautiful! It's about a mother loses her new born baby.

    General CommentI have a 1.5 yr old daughter. My wife LOVES Celine Dion, so I just checked this song out because really likes this song. But myself, I don't really like her, grated she has an amazing voice and I love the fact she's Canadian, it's just not my type of music.

    I had no idea this song meant what Cool Breeze said. As a Dad, that brought a tear to my eye, and forever on, I'll think of this song differently.

    Thanks.

    General CommentWhen my dad died in 2000 I was asked to choose a song to be played at his service as people were leaving. My dad was a well loved man, the church was full, people were standing in the back and even outside because they couldn't get in... This is the song I chose, and people stopped in their tracks, no one could bring themselves to leave as they heard this song and it ended up being looped I think 4 times before everyone moved outside. It makes me cry to hear it now, such bittersweet memories... I'm so glad my dad was loved by everyone he knew--thank you Celine for this song allowing me to show what my dad meant to me.

    General CommentYes, Cool Breeze is 100% wrong, and myrdhyn, you are correct. Fly (or Vole, the French version) was written after Celine lost her beloved niece, Karine, to CF in 1994. Karine was 16 when she passed away, in Celine's arms, as Celine sang to her and made her feel comfortable enough to let go.

    General CommentBy the way, this is my favourite Celine song. The story behind it has touched me so deeply, and I would love to one day name my daughter Karine, after the girl that brought so much to Celine's life. Like I said, I'm a HUGE fan, so it would be my own little tribute.
