Food and shelter toys and things
but most all we gave you wings

Tried to say “Yes” as much as “No”
and prayed your mind and spirit grow

We watered, weeded fed this plant
taught the difference of "can” and  "can't "

Know  gilded cage is still a cage
Ignorance a curse in any age

Faith in God is never blind
for God made eyes to see
for light He also made the mind
and ordained you would be free

See  Noah’s little window open
and the dove leaps through the sky
spread its wings which were not broken
but as good as till we try

A raven's heart is gone forever
but not so little doves
seeking grace is its endeavor
and it will come back with love
