the sparrow follows me...
my constant companion..
my truest friend...

the sparrow speaks to me...
with words of wisdom...
with words of care...

the sparrow stays with me...
through times of sorrow...
he's always there...

my gaurdian angel...
he lifts me up...
with his wings he guides me..
and i never give up...
in life he protects me...
in death he'll be with me...

my sparrow, my angel...
my life, my death...
you're always behind me...
and i'm two steps ahead...

my sparrow follows me...
my sparrows there...
my truest friend...
i know you care...

Wow. Loved it -- you should write more poetry! The only thing that made me wince was rhyming "up" with

"up" I know you have to do it sometimes, but just so you know...

I love sparrows, they're so cute, and I love how you made a "sparrow" your angel. Amazing poem! Is it really supposed to be a sparrow, or is it supposed to symbolize someone else?

Hey I was browsing Teen Ink and I came across your poem. Wow, this was very delicately crafted. As I read, I could tell right off the bat that every word was chosen with care! Nice job :)
