Songbird- by Michelle Artiaga
(For my girls Maya Holt and Kira Holt)

It's hard to find the words or deeds to somehow make things right –
To try and mend the broken wing and renew it's joyful flight.
I'm with you in the storm you face
My love, my heart,there too.
Just know the day that passes by ,
will once again renew. 
Songbird, sing your song again- when dark days and  nights are long.
Your sweetest song will right the way---
when all the world is wrong.
The hurricane has ended,that
destroyed our happy home.
We can now rebuild again -
The foundation, oh,so strong!
Rest your weary head 
upon my strengthened chest.
 May it help to ease the pain inside
 and give you time to rest.
Your wings will mend -face towards the light.
 The sun above and love within, will help regain your sight----
Songbird sing your song anew,
Within the darkest night.
Soon the broken wing will mend,
In song, you'll find your flight
(Written for you with love my babies--Mom)-By Michelle Artiaga 10/24/16
