By Wendi (That’s me!)
Little birdie, sweet and fine
Sitting on your wooden line.
You love to sing, and dance, and play
Chirping to your friends all day.
I wonder how your cage can be
A place that brings you happy things?
With bars, and locks, and spaces tight,
Keeping you from taking flight.
But every day I look at you
Singing to the sky so blue.
Your song is filled with joy and glee
For being able to just be. . .
A little bird sent from above
To teach our family “what is love!”
You show our family what to do
“Just love each day, being YOU!”
