Silent Tears

Early in the morning,
darkness hides our secret.
Bundled against the cold,
I walk with silent tears.

Under this tree I’ll leave her,
my little bird.
I gave her a name.
I pinned it underneath her blankets.

I must leave quickly
or be found myself.
I cannot move.

What will her life be like?
Who will make her smile?
Who will help her dance and fly?
My bird.

Early in the morning,
darkness hides our secret.
