Once in a land full of life
At least that's what I was told so
There lived a happy man and his wife
Who smiled and watched the birds go
One day as they were watching the birds
The old man had flipped his hat
For he had said only a few words
And it was that he could fly like that
The wife then began to frown
For the man had simply gone mad
So she got ready to leave the town
Which made the cheery guy sad
He swore to her that he would fly
So the wife had grabbed her things
She opened the door and said bye
And when she left, the man sprouted wings
A few years had come and gone
The wife grew old and watched time pass
One day when sitting, she heard a song
That sounded from her fifth floor window glass
'my love,' it said, 'I now have wings.
my love,' it went on, 'I wish you would see me fly.
my dear, come look at me, drop your things.
I wait by your window, perched in the sky.'
The wife got up and looked out the pane
She froze at the sight she had saw
Her husband flying, or was she insane?
He smiled at her dropped jaw.
'My love, come with me. Fly in the sky.'
'I can't,' she shook her head
'oh come on. climb out. I promise you won't die.'
So she climbed out, and was never seen again.

My husband bought me earrings
With an avian design.
They look like feathers of a hawk;
I’m happy that they’re mine.
At first they didn’t grab me
When within the box they lay,
But dangling from my ears they’re great,
As I found out today.
Since red tail hawks will mate for life
The symbolism fits,
For 40 years of marriage means
We’ll never call it quits.
I often witness red tail hawks
In flight or in a tree
And now in silver I can sport
A hawk facsimile.

I have felt the sting of your hurtful words
I have cried a thousand tears
I have lived to long in your world
I have tried to change you for fifteen years
You used your anger to control
Your hands to hit not to love me
Now you want to know why I have to go
Why I want to be free
Now it is over and done
you want me back promising you will do right
But I hung on to long
I don't want you to hold me tight
I wish sometimes we could have had a good marriage
But our love died long ago
You wanted to treat me like a little bird and lock me in a cage
Well this little bird has to spread her wings don't you know
