“The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.”

Thoughts of you pass my mind,
Not just once, but all the time.

When you left, I couldn't understand,
I hated that I could never see you again.

Each night I cried myself to sleep.
I would think of you and begin to weep.

I cried for you, day by day,
Your soul floating miles away.

Into the stars, I suppose.
Far enough that no one knows.

I know a part of you is out there, your spirit in the trees.
Because I sometimes feel the presence of you, somewhere in the breeze.

You are in the grass, the ocean, the earth as a whole,
Your spirit more powerful than I can control.

Well, wherever you truly are, I hope you're content.
For I know that you have had a life well spent.

I trained you when you were young.
I raised you when your life just begun.

You were my furry little friend.
I never thought your life would end.

I still wish you were here, sitting on my shoulder.
Or on top of your cage where you couldn't be bolder.

You were so cute, so soft, so pure.
I loved you and that I am sure.

You made me laugh when you would dance
And sing for me inside my hands.

I loved your feathers, wings and song.
Please come back home, where you belong.

I know, I know, it's no possibility.
I must let go of you and me.

But if I could talk to you one time,
I would let them out, these feelings of mine.

There is much I would like to say.
You were my everything, my world, my day.

Now you are free, as free as a dove.
I loved you so much. Goodbye, my love.
