Sing me a song from above
Sing me a lullabye of love
For I cannot fall into sleep
Visions of you are the company I keep
So weary and worn out am I
Since you passed away and I said goodbye
Come wrap your soft wings around me
Come hold me and soothe me and help me to see
The good times we shared together
Just me and you, two birds of a feather
Did you feel our beautiful bond?
Did I show you enough before you were gone?
How much you meant to me
Now that you’ve passed, can you still see
My face in the rising sun
Our story had just begun
The end was untimely, unfair
This is too much to bear.
So until my tears subside
I’ll write poems to you by your small grave outside
Beneath your favorite tree
That’s where you’ll always find me…
For Billy, my most beloved bird…
