RED BIRD

When I see you, my lil red bird ~ its not just a feathered friend I see!
The same day my Mary died, you came to visit me!

It's been almost two years and you haven't left my sight.... I see you out my window and hear you when I wake.

I believe you are a messenger - sent from above, to remind me that my loved ones are close - forever with me to love.

Thank you so much Susan ~ Laurie too ~ I didn't realize i was writing a poem until I was halfway through. I like the idea of framing it... Chad still wants me to to frame my "What is Love" poem. (you can find it on my lil website: www.jenicombs.com, under My Writings.... it's the only poem I put up there).
