The Caged Bird is Set Free

Our caged bird will sing no more Though her songs will live on forever Angel wings she now adorns With our tears upon each feather The freedom she sought The love that she taught The words that she strung together Are treasures to keep While in sorrow we weep For a world that will never forget her From the bodily cage Her soul now flies free And ascends to the heavens on high The songs that she sung She sang for everyone With a dream that will never die I will miss our sweet bird But will remember her words That she sang from inside the cage As we hear them repeat In verses sown sweet When she was the star of the stage
