Favorite Quote:
Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath.
-Emily Dickinson


Don’t cry
My little bird
Safe in my hands
I’ll hold you tight
Warm and love
I’m here to give

Sing for me
Will you please?
The sun still
rises
The sun still sets
The moon Still
waits
for the sun’s return

Raise your head
Don’t shed those
tears into
your bright feathers
where them proud
Clean off the mud
To hide the happiness
you refuse to feel

Spread your wings
Take flight
little bird
Fly to the sky
Higher
down the ground
where
you lay
before me

Open those eyes
Let out those
tears
Don’t cry
My little bird
My princess

You have no
faint heart
Show me your strength
It’s hanging
So beautiful
In a cage for all
to see

Little bird
Sing your song
Smile so bright
Show me that fire
Burn it bright
Like your feathers
Warmth and love
Ask and I’ll give
all to you
