Beautiful Bird

Beautiful bird

just above my reach

let me touch your wing

Your feathers glisten in the sun

the wind moves you

and you comply

I want to soar with you

I want to see what you see

Imagining you, in your nest

atop the highest trees

warm and gentle as the sun goes down

I would tell you what its like

to walk along the earth

but I fear you wouldn’t understand

Our views of this world are different

but we are seeing the same things

And as I watch you in the sky

I wonder if you look towards me

and seeing that we are the same

If you could teach me to fly

I could teach you to dance

your wings could block the glare from

the sun

when it becomes hard for me to see

I could hold you in my arms

when you need to rest

I could feed you with my touch

We are different, but we are the same

you are a beautiful bird, and I am just a man

but I see what you see

and we feel the same breeze

and when the sun goes down tonight

you will remember me too
