The World as I see it

Bird that Sings

bird-flight Have you seen a bird fly Fluttering away to touch the sky Across the rivers, and trees and sands Flying away to unknown lands?

Singing songs at heart's solace Measuring lands at its own pace Welcomes the sun with its melodious tunes And seeks adieu from the evening moons

I am the bird that flies too high Enchanted by the glittering sky Too far off from my small nest In the airs which I know the best...

And flying high I sometimes wonder In pensive moods I sometimes ponder Of songs of joys, courage and hope In which feelings unsaid, elope.

In moments of sorrow, gloom and despair When all you need is love and care We embrace you in those caring songs And take you beyond rights and wrongs

When shattered you are and lost is life And you give up the endless strife Trapped you are at life's dead end We become your comrade, your true friend

But flying high I sometimes wonder In pensive moods I sometimes ponder Amidst the tunes of the joyous lanes Do you ever feel some tears or pain?

In moments of sorrow, gloom and despair When all we need is love and care You refuse to hear our saddened voice You move on with your life, you do rejoice

When shattered we are and lost is life And we give up the endless strife Trapped we are at life's dead end You never come to rescue, O dear friend?

So flying high I sometimes wonder In pensive moods I sometimes ponder Is the world so cruel, cold and mean Or the fault lies within, unnoticed and unseen?

Maybe we are not made to cry Maybe all we can do is fly And search for a broken heart And join the pieces torn apart

Maybe our sorrows, minuscule or grand Are themselves too sad for you to withstand Or maybe too insignificant for you to understand And so amidst tears alone we stand.

And so flying high I sometimes wonder In pensive moods I sometimes ponder Maybe our songs are not too great So hoping against hope we endlessly wait.
