Today I Saw A Bird

Today I saw a bird flying in the reminded me of you.  I opened up my window and let it come thru, it sang me a song  and  put  me to sleep, and in my dream took me to where you would be. I took hold of your hand and looked  in your eyes, then told you how  I’ve missed you  and  tried not to cry.  We spent  all day laughing and talking about things,  reminiscing on old memories and how long its been.  We layed in a meadow and  stared  at the sky , I  turned my head gently as a tear left my eye.  The sky slowly got  darker as night time grew near, you  looked  at me and said,  ‘‘ There’s nothing to fear,  I’ll always be with you, in good times and bad and one day we’ll be together  again so please don’t  be sad.. Its time for you to wake up now and get back to your life, and I’ll be here waiting for you on the day you arrive.’’ Today I saw a bird, it reminded me of you ..I opened up my window.. And let it come thru..

    Hi Mandy - this is a beautiful poem. I love the imagery of the bird - free, and symbolic of wants and times shared. Very well written. I would like to extend my hand in welcome to the PoetrySoup community. There’s a lot to learn from each other here and hopefully you will have a great time while at it. Feel free to check out my poems when you can. I am looking forward to reading more from you. Vicky.
