Moonlight Bird

Was it yesterday I missed your shadow on my window pane
Was it yesterday I missed your soft sad shriek through the night
Oh, have you changed your course and flown another way
Or have you been brought down to earth by a hunter’s aim

It was just the other day you sat on the branch of your friend the tree
It was just the other day you sat on his branch and combed your tail
And then one day you came back home to find him gone
Cut and chopped without compassion by the humankind

How hard I tried to comfort you when I heard you cry
How hard I tried to show you the pain I felt inside
Oh, don’t you please judge me like them men who killed your friend
I loved him as much as you did, O’ Moonlight bird.
