A Poem by Tami Snow
For you I'd sing across the miles
Touch your heart, make you smile
My song a tune of happiness while
Truly longing like that of a child's
A canary only sings when it's lonely
My melody soothing all of your tears
A warbled symphony erasing your fears
Locked in this precious cage for years
Are you really listening, can you hear?
A canary only sings, because he's lonely.
Falsetto hymns flow from my meager form
Easily disguising, just how deeply forlorn
From realizing the truest of love, I'm torn
Heart bleeding harmonies fated to mourn
Canaries only sing tragedies, they're lonely.
