My Little Yellow Bird.


My small little yellow bird,
So soft and cute
Lost in a stormy night,
I cannot find you,

O' my little lovely bird -
Where have you vanished?
Don't deceive me in this way
I'll die besides you.

Why did you come to me
With your splendor and beauty,
You hijacked my heart and soul
In a moment without notice.

Now again you're lost out
In the vast open sky,
No where I can find out you
After that stormy night.


From pillars to posts, in days and nights
I'm searching you,
Being alienated since I lost you.
I'm very lonely without you.

I'll keep you within my two arms
And embrace with a kiss,
I'll hold you so close and firm
That you can never go again.

O' my little yellow bird
Don't wander around
Come back and cool my heart
I'm only waiting for you.

    Wandering through a storm in your mind, looking for your lost love, who once filled your life with beauty and joy. Searching everywhere for your love, being disappointed at not finding her, falling into a deep loneliness while waiting for her return. Your life now foreign even to itself. You have touched my heart, Amitava, your sadness fills my heart with your pain - let it console your being. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Your lovely yellow bird must be sheltered in loving hands.... When the due time comes, once and for ever you'll be united with her.... Let this thought console you! Poignant write! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
