Baby Kitten


From a little girl,
to your kitten,
oh, baby, I love you.
We could've been perfect,
but now we're precious
and that's just as good as
as good as it gets.
Our hearts shattered
and they healed
together
so delicate,
that's what love is,
that's what makes it
makes life worth it,
makes us make it
through the darkness
I hear your song,
come my darling,
follow my paws,
Forever separate,
together we'll make it.
You gave me a collar,
I gave you my heart
so we can find each other
through the dark.
This world is so dark.
But you've accepted me,
and I've adopted you,
so no matter where we are,
I'll always be under your arm.
And I'll be safe in your feathers
and I'll put my wings to protect you
and we'll keep each other warm.
Because this world is so mean without you
and you're my 'Wolverine'
I don't think I could survive without you,
and I know I couldn't dream.
You gave me these fangs to keep me strong
and these claws to make me weak.
I could have wings like a skylark
and die under my tree,
but I'd rather be a baby lovebird
with my baby,
because this world is so cruel
and you can only be sweet,
so I'll rest against your muscles
'till I'm strong enough to fly away.
From the crook of your arm,
'till I reach the weeping cherry trees,
you'll help me grow up
into a full-fledged parakeet,
and I'll be sweet forever
just like you taught me
and I'll always be your kitten,
because you're my baby.
