LIKE A BIRD

Like a bird you flew into our lives…soared in on wings so strong.

When you spread those wings you protected us.

When you sang…you comforted us with song.

 

Once you chose to enter our lives…as you glided ‘cross the sky

we learned from you of gracefulness…you taught us how to fly…

 

You’ve shown us without trying…as over us you’ve flown…

that every creature on this planet has a beauty all its own.

 

Like a bird you flew into our lives…and as we watched you soar

we realized our lives are better now than they have ever been before.

 

Perhaps that is one of the beauties of life:

The more we age…the more we grow

we realize our life’s enhanced…by everyone we know…

 

How everyone is beautiful…

How everyone is free…

How everyone is here for a reason

Everyone…like you…and me…

 

Like a bird you flew into out lives

and to you we were immediately drawn…

but life is unpredictable

and one day you were gone.

 

Gone in an instant…a flash…a moment

gone in the blinking of an eye

gone before any of us were ready…

which makes it hard to say goodbye…

 

But we will be forever glad we knew you

forever glad for your kindness and your smile

forever glad you flew into our lives

 

at least…for a little while.
