The Lonely Sparrow - Poem by NeiL ArandA

I saw two small sparrow perched together on a tree
Tiny and insignificant no one would carefree

Their tattered coats were brown speckled with black
Feathers ruffled as the wind beat upon their back

Two small sparrow that God forgot
In one stormy night one fell and the other did not

One lone speckled sparrow went on and on
Looking in vain for the one that was gone

Its downcast eyes looks dimmed, brokenhearted
Soul achin' but can't fly away to escape the rain

Once a cheerful little bird who enjoys a company
There was little left to find than a comfort of the canopy

Neither a robin nor a jay would dare come
It won't say a word because of what it has become

Mundane and indifference forced this lone sparrow to flee
And now it has no place to live but in a broken tree

I saw that small speckled sparrow sitting alone in an old tree
And I cried in silence because that sparrow was me
