A Bird in the Hand

We loved this place, you and I.
It was special,
Full of love and promises for the future.
Every year we returned
To savour, envelope, give thanks,
And reminisce.
This year I come alone,
But a bird alights on my hand,
Touches my fingers gently,
A caress rather than peck,
And I remember.
We promised each other a sign
Should we be separated.
Not knowing what,
Not knowing when,
But we would know.
You are free on the wind,
Your spirit soars in the sky
But you came to me.
I am not alone,
And know I am blessed,
And loved from beyond.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
