‘Fly away little bird’

Fly away little bird
spread your wings wide
Fly away little bird
don’t be afraid of the sky
It holds many beautiful things
sights to see
moments to capture
Fly away
as if nothing can stop you
leave the ground
as much as you want to
Shake out the sand
from under your wings
take to the air
and see new things
A little bird, though you are
Your dreams are big
Your heart is bold
Your eyes see far
but as you fly
to where you want to go
don’t lose sight
of what you have now
and what you know
Fly away little bird

– A friend wrote this for me on my birthday last year. I read it often and it reminds me of my heart.
