Good-bye Bird

http://youtu.be/IsZvxuvu18g

Good-bye my pretty Bird,

Fly away free

Never mind the tears

They’re not for you, but for me.

Good-bye my golden friend

The one who drives me mad

Even now I smile at memories

That share my life with you, making me glad.

Good-bye our precious grandmother

The children loved you a tonne

I told them when I came home

You gave me the last touch

So the game continues on!

Good-bye my pretty little bird

Death has collected you at a young age

How peacefully you left us

To say farewell to your empty cage.

RIP Mum 11/12/1944 – 25/04/2015

Bird


Soft and plush

Skin so lush
Never a wrinkle
Only a blush
Snuggled and dear
Face not clear
Hidden with twinkling eyes
So clear
Feisty to all
Having a ball
Shirking death
With every breath
Counting the days
Seeing she’s okay
Not long to go
Pain will show
Until the last
Breath has passed
My bird will stay
Hidden away
Under the covers
Everyday.
