A Tribute ...

When I fall out of my nest, will you catch me?
If you find me on the street - broken and hurt - will you pick me up?

I am this baby bird, helpless, injured, fallen from the love
of my mother and my father ... can you mend me?

Or at least hold me while I am dying ...
and maybe sing me to sleep forever.

Will you cry bitter tears because I touched your heart and now I'm gone?

BUT at the same time you smile and rejoice, because NOW I am free?!

I AM FREE NOW ... FREE ... and I look back at you and I whisper: Thank you ...
