Dear little bird, to where is your destination?
Out of this vast exotic locations
Are your little wings able to handle wind's tides?
And are you capable to withstand this rollercoaster ride?
Dear little bird you are terribly blessed
A human like me would exchange every best
To be in your spot as you depart
But leaving the nest breaks both our hearts
Dear little bird, so fragile yet so brave
Your Momma couldn't help but cry as she bade
Good bye, good bye my darling dear
The day of your depart has always been my fear
Dear little bird how lucky you've been
To be free from the grasp of childhood grills
For you to experience first hand what's life
Come back and visit again and tell me how it feels
Dear little bird you have finally returned
But what's this that I have heard
Your feathers no longer the shimmer in the midnight sun
But before I could do anything else, you have gone
