Songbird…

Songbird stamp-1

A smile so pure and innocent, energy without end,

ideas and dreams continuously explode in her head.

Holding nothing back, she has a thought to share,

from the silly to the sublime, serious to scary,

her heart pours forth.

A family that makes her feel safe,

imagination set free.

Sings more than speaks,

harmony so tender.

A gift of song to touch the heart

bringing tears to a parents eyes.

A talent to be shared, enjoyed by more,

awe of the divine resonance exalted.

Need for security more valued,

than standing before the applause.

This gift reserved for home,

private concerts on her time.

Adults slow to understand and accept,

the nature of this one.

So unlike them yet so much like herself,

with no reason for change.

We get it now.
