Little Bird

Fly little bird fly
The sky is vast, 
And life is yours
To spread your wings, goodbye

Come back and see me soon
I'll wait until
We meet again
Each time that you have grown

Don't be afraid little bird
If you feel that
You have flown too far
Just turn back I'll be here

Fly little bird fly
The world awaits your beautiful song
And all the lands afar
Will love you for the joy you are

  1. Ah that's so lovely. Do you know the children's book 'Ruby Flew Too'? Makes me cry every time I read it to Ruby - the sentiments are the same as this poem, and I am being buried with a copy of it!
