You are lost and I am afraid
You cannot remember your way to the warmth of the sun.
How you arrived here is anyone’s guess.
Only you truly know the path you have journeyed.
I’ve tried to save you
But you’re up so high
Where you are not meant to be.
Flitting and thrashing against the cold
For you know not the way to where you need to be.
When you settle
I will reach you.
I’ll put you back where you belong
In the open sky.
Please don’t look back.
This you must promise me
You will fly.
Fly away free.
