The nest

Rain comes in spring
and leaves in the fall
The letter it read
"For once and for all"
But I'm looking down
from inside my room
The story I tell
reminds me of you

Three little eggs
baby my blue
Fallen from branches
without a clue
I gently hold them
warm to my chest
Lower them down
back to the nest

Answers I seek
but silence I hear
But oh, how this music
tickles my ear
Walk to the graveyard
when I'm feeling down
There on the footpath
the note that I found

Be still my darling
baby my blue
Fallen from heaven
without a clue
So gently I hold you
warm to my chest
and lower you down
so you can rest
