The Pretty Little Wounded Bird
Author: Robert


A pretty little wounded bird,
Frightened as could be,
Was huddled there beneath a bush
Hiding there from me.

I gently cupped it in my hands
And held it tenderly,
This pretty little wounded bird
Knew hed found a friend, you see

He grew in strength, day by day
And I knew that soon wed part,
But that little tiny feathered friend
Had surely won my heart.

And then one day it sang a song
As if to say goodbye
With a nod of its head
And a twitch of its tail
It flew off into the sky.

Away it flew, goodbye to you
Come bye this way again.
And when I see a bird in my tree
Ill think of our time back then.

Such a gentle write

You may lose something or someone that needed you,but your strength and kindness made them strong again to face life.Be proud that what you did was give a gift of freedom.

Catyrose & Barb Flyaway little bird

Isn't it funny how something so simple can teach us life lessons; caring, love, letting go.
Then you think you've helped someone, but in the end, you're the one whose benefited!
