You always loved the birds
You would fill the feeders each day and they would thank you with a beautiful symphony of trills and Chirps
Your eyes shining bright as you would take my small little body into your warm maternal arms and left me up to see the robins nest
Your soft voice in my ear reminding me to listen to the love song of the red breasted Finch
The endless amount of time you devoted to teaching me to listen to the peaceful patterns of nature
You taught me to love life
But suddenly you were gone
You said you would be riding the wings of an angel, but the angel dropped you and you fell out of the sky.
If only you had wings of your own so you could soar from heaven to earth
Yet, Because you loved me so much
I still love life
I still find peace in nature
Each day I fill the feeders and I think of you
I hope with all my heart that you are still here with me
Perhaps you are one of the birds
Or maybe you are the slight breeze that gently whispers in my ear
But wherever you are…
Please know that I will always love the birds.
