Akiane's Birds - Poem by L C Vieira

Akiane's birds are prayers
but snow falls today.

Are these the missing prayers
of Your people?
Each different? All the same.
Reminders of what could be,
but isn't.

I close my eyes and pray
for birds to carry these back to You,
and that Your gentle footsteps
tread with mercy
on the ones left behind.
