Don't Say It.

Don't say, 'tis only a bird to me

There's a thousand more for you to see.


Don't say, if a tiny ant should die,

A hundred more will pass you by.


Don't say of the butterfly caught in a web,

Leave him to die, watch the living instead.


Don't say for the bumble bee, dead at my feet

That a part of me, inside can't weep.


Don't say to me, it's natures law,

For each life lost, there's always more.


For it's that single life I see,

And I just care - so let me be!
