Auf Wiedersehen

Warnings were never really my style.
I’m a crooked wing, not good for much.
I’m fickle as can be; I can’t bear to drag you down.
In the morning, I’ll be gone.
A speck of dust on your camera lense.
A stiff breeze by the lake in your backyard.
Shed no tears for me please, for I’ll be back around.
I’ll go where my heart takes me, which means I’ll never get lost.
Eventually, my sweet, the wind will carry me back.
So to you I say, Auf Wiedersehen.

This is short and sweet - I'm guessing Auf Wiedersehen means goodbye or something along those lines? My favorite line is "I'll go where my heart takes me, which means I'll never get lost." Yet another great poem :)
