If I was a bird!

If I was a bird, I would fly the earth just to be by your side
I would wrap my wings around you and keep you warm at night
I would sing like a nightingale to calm your woes and moods
I would fly with you into the night and seek to reach the moon

If I was a bird, I would not be trapped or locked within a cage
I would not have wings clipped to keep me from you at any stage
I would feel the sunshine and its warmth upon my aging plumage
I would sing only when content but that would take some courage

But I am not a bird…

I cannot fly to be by your side…nor will I ever keep you warm
The moon above I’ll never reach…nor sing a note, just sigh and weep
Trapped in my world away from yours… divided all by distant miles
Apart we are and may remain… although always so close at heart.
