Red Bird

Red bird
I watch as you
Lift your feet off the ground
Takeoff

Flap your great wings
Up into the sky

You have,
No worries
No fears

Just time,
To fly
To soar
To be next to the angels in the clouds

I watch as you
Leave this place

I wish I could come but,
I am just a girl
Without wings
My feet
Always on the ground
