My Little Bird

Life constantly changes
A white day could
Suddenly turn black
But no matter what happens
I know my little bird’s got my back

I keep her in my pocket
She chirps and she sings
She shades me from the scorching Light of Day
With her gilded wings

And when the Cold Night comes
She keeps me company
She rests next to my pillow
As we share our dreams

My little bird hates those Cages
She’s as free as she can be
When she’s
Flying
And soaring
Out there with me

Sometimes I can’t seem to comprehend
Why my little bird feels upset
When all I’ve given her
Is the best she could ever get

I guess I was wrong
To think my little bird would always be there
It seems to me
That her heart belongs elsewhere

What an awful person I would be
To ask her to stay
To plead to her
To cry to her
And beg her not to leave

I guess it’s safe to say
We’ll still be under the same sky
If my little bird wants to leave
Who am I to ask her why?

So fly away little birdie
And spread your charm
Your distance might hurt me at first
But it will do me no permanent damage or harm

For I am certainly sure
That this is what you need
A perfect Escape
A new life to lead

Your colorful feathers
Are what I’d mostly miss to see
I love you little birdie
That’s why I am setting you free

To a place far away from me
A place where I shall become Nothing
But a crumbled photograph
In your vague memory

Never forget me my little bird
Nor the memories we had
The only thing that keeps me going
Is the Fact
That you are no longer sad

So fly away little birdie
And spread your charm
Your distance might hurt me at first
But it will do me no permanent damage or harm-
