Sorrow sparrow looks down upon this leaf

Wondering what could have been instead

Sorrow sparrow lets down a little tear

Of the loss that’s left behind


Sorrow sparrow looks up and around the broken branches

Sees the sky above and the wind’s galore

Sorrow sparrow flaps her wings and loosens the bristles

Up and down as she musters courage


Sorrow sparrow takes a little leap

Using her strength to soar above the guards built up


Sorrow sparrow flaps her wings and launches off

As she looks around the life left behind


Sorrow sparrow rose from the pain of loss and began to understand

I’ve not lost anything but know I have loved deeply and completely

Sorrow sparrow looked back at that broken nest

And said thank you for helping me rise
