Help for today & Hope for tomorrow

Wounded Bird


I mourn you today as I did yesterday and will do tomorrow

I mourn each day with the sunrise as I open my eyes,

I feel emptiness in my heart like a sharp knife! Tears fill my life.

Not one day that I don’t cry since you been gone.


I thought by now I’d be dry inside ready to die.

Memories of you sitting by the bed side like a

wounded bird! Why was I blinded it was blurred.

You flew away to a better place. You been saved.


At nights I whisper come back to me if only for a while

waiting on a ghost to  comfort me pull the knife out.

Wanting to fall but standing on my feet. My strength is

 the courage of my faith my heart will continue to beat.
