Fly, my sweet bird, fly!

Fly,  my sweet bird, fly!
Let your wings take you to heights unknown.
Let your adventures be memorable.
Let your eyes see the beauty still present in the world.

And when your wings need a rest,
Fly back to me,  straight into my open arms,
For you will always be safe here
Until you are ready to built your own nest elsewhere.

Tell me of all your adventures,
Of all your hopes and dreams.
And when you’re done and rested
Fly,  my sweet bird,  fly!


 

Dedicated to my sweet munchkin.
I saw you running at the playground yesterday,  your legs, longer now,  transport you so much faster than the baby steps you once sported. You dashed across the playground as I sat and watched you play. You were my little bird,  flying in the wind — and what a windy day that was!  How much and fast you’ve grown,  how much you’ve thrived,  how blessed I am to see you become the beautiful bird that you are — my sweet bird,  flying, as with the time that has flown so fast these three and a half years. You played endlessly, then returned to me intermittently to rest and share a few hugs, then off you went like a bird flying to your next adventure. Precious moments to remember forever… Fly, my sweet bird,  fly!

  1. They grow so fast, don’t they? I was just marveling on that as we gear up for my middle son’s 11th and my youngest son’s 3rd birthdays this summer. Lovely piece, my friend. Blessings to you and your little bird. 🙂

    1. Thank you for noticing. I feel like with her, I’m making up for lost time. I’m doing things with her I didn’t have the chance to do with my boys who are now grown . I’m a better parent now… More patient, attentive to details and a more mature person mentally. She is definitely getting the best of me and yet I’m learning so much from her. It’s amazing! ☺

      1. Like almost anything we do, we get better with practice. It applies to parenting too. For me, growing older has added a deepening perspective about what’s important. My kids and grandkids have benefited from the changes that come with age. I’m so glad you are enjoying your daughter’s joy.
