Song of the Bluebird
Age Group: Adult
Nothing is more sweet than the whisper of the wind
Upon which the song of a bluebird is carried
Enticingly hypnotic is the ethereal voice
Enlightening pathways along lifeís crossroads
And so itís said that this is how the story goes
I write, I sing, I play quietly when there is such a need
I feel the beating of drums buried down deep within my soul
An odd sensation I will say, that it seems I cannot escape
Whether Iím here or there, it is with me always
In the heaviness of the song there is found no randomness
There is but one reason alone, to lose oneself
The brilliance of a solemn spark ignites a tender heart
It is an emotion Iíve learned to share, for I am the one
Who has nurtured it, throughout all these years
Two halves of a complete heart
Though the pain is harsh at times, Iím oft not wrong
Not an easy task, is one much harder to watch
When one side closes its eyes so tightly, electing hell
The other so utterly terrified of no more than itself
Refusing to show its true face, skin, hair, nails, toes
Amongst other things, the list seemingly endless
In opposite directions running like scared rabbits
Though like magnets they cannot deny the pull
Always finding themselves back where they started
Too, both have bound themselves to death
Ancestrally, maritally, as siblings and spouses
The weight youíll find is not found upon the neck
Nor, at any time is it vulnerable to being broken
For I would die a thousand times over and over again
To honor and protect every year of its making
It is always a safe bet to remember
A bluebird never leaves their nest unattended
Betrayal seems to be the common link these days
But such treachery is only found in deceit or thievery
And not when that which is so abundantly treasured
Is given wholly and freely, though at times a bit reluctantly
Do not fear the hurt you think youíve placed on me
There is no other I trust more, so it is I who called you here
To hear my song and listen to the beauty in the chords
I flew away once, too far this time to return
No matter how hard I try, Iíll never be able to take it back
It appears I've left the one thing I found that finally mattered
Itís not fair that I should place upon another this curse
To be imprisoned so contently amidst this life sentence
Iíll never understand, though I cherish it always
When you see my name youíll know Iím here
Hidden amongst the staff, serpent and reeds
Keeping an ever watchful eye on the horizon
Listen intently to the song the bluebird sings
Author's Notes: Today begins Suicide Prevention and Awareness Week. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and about the 12th in the UK not to mention all the countries worldwide. Please take a moment to think about those who didn't and still don't know how to ask for help or for those that didn't and don't know how to help themselves.
