My Bird And I

by A Little Bird


that my heart's yearning for you won't abate

seems I deceived myself when I supposed I was above

This poem is about lovers, but it was inspired by the relationship between my father and his companion animal, Melody. My parents didn't want a pet bird, because of the mess and noise they create, so were very unhappy when I brought her home. Melody almost instantly decided, however, that she and my dad were soulmates. One day my parents had had enough and returned her to the pet shop... then the next day my heartsick dad brought her back home again! She and he are now almost never parted and depend on each other a lot emotionally.
