Chirping like sprightly young birds, excitement forever lingering around
Limitless hope and elation reflecting in our sparkling eyes,
Testing the limits of our promising wings we flew far and wide,
Until bliss we had finally found.
Over stretched wilderness we flew
Over mighty mountains we soared
Scaling heights that we not before knew
Had so many golden memories to offer.
We had everything that two birds could dream of.
Freedom, wings and each other.
I considered myself the luckiest bird that was ever born
However little had I known that those halcyon days were not to last forever.
One unfortunate sunny day
As we were gliding over the brook,
Appreciating our reflections on the sapphire blue water
Unaware that you were aimed upon by the hunter ready to shoot.
Haunting memories of your broken wings and screams to my present reconnaissance claims
Despite what your lingering dead spirit says
While I drop a tear on your somber remains
I bid farewell to the memories of those halcyon days.
