A Little Birdie Told Me... - Poem by Mary Nagy

I know you're hurt and hungry.
I know you cry all night.
Just try to hold your head up.
You're gonna win this fight.

Let's say a little birdie told me
that you're so very strong.
He said that you are suffering.
You have been for so long.

Your prayers are being answered
please listen as I speak.
I promise you'll survive this.
That's a promise I shall keep.

Your tears won't go unnoticed.
Those scars will disappear.
Remember what I've told you
when I cannot be here.

You hold the key to happiness
within your battered heart.
I'll be with you in spirit...
for we shall never part.

    I heard a man say the other day that sometimes we have to give the love to ourselves that we cannot get from anyone else, and this must surely be one of those comfort and love that little one, to reassure. Kindness personified. (Report) Reply
