    Songbird
    he clipped your wings
    stole your melody
    and locked you in a cage
    that wasn't even gilded
    you watched the world go by
    dizzied by the speed of life
    and longed for the days
    when you soared among the clouds
    you came close to touching heaven
    when you were free
    then came he
    who loved you into
    captivity

    Songbird
    your wings will grow back
    and you'll find your song
    for time is the salve
    by which all things are healed
    and you'll fly
    Songbird
    kiss the sky
    Songbird
    raise your voice to the heavens
    Songbird
    and i'll be blessed again with
    your music

    My sister within the realms, Gods children shall connect. Nevertheless we were created by God, many of us are not his children. It is a honor to know a sister in spirit. Continue to spread your wings. I know why the cage bird cried.

    Thank you. I've been likened to a fine wine...I'm honored. Chardonnay, Beaujolais or Reisling? ;)

    I know why she cried also. She still does sometimes. But she flies more often than not. Sister, thank you for your words here. I have been blessed by them.
