Goldheart Bird


When I Think Of You


Your eyes, like a pearl,
Shining when we play,
Your adorable head looking, straight at me.

I just cannot resist hugging and kissing you.
Even though you’re not a dog, you still show love.
Your tiny beak reaching for a seed,

When I get you out your cage, you'll dangle and play in my hair.
I love it how it feels, to be close to you.
Your small claws grab for a piece of apple, spitting the pulp out at me.

Whenever I go to the kitchen to get a pencil,
You will always say 'Hi Brightwing! ‘Even though your name is Brightwing your self,
You’re very sweet, my very own friend, I cannot ever leave you.

I love you always, as you know, but even when I leave you a day you always make a mess when we come home.
When the lights go off and it is time for bed, you snuggle in your own bed too.

The morning comes; you’re the first one to wake up.
You always wake up late on Sundays and Saturdays, enjoying your cozy yellow bed.
You'll squawk or chirp till someone gives you attention.

You’re the best friend I can ever wish for.
My furry friend,

    Allison, i couldn't decide if this sounded like a poem or a nice non-poetic story of love for your bird. i have decided that it DOES qualify as a poem, and, even if it did not, i would (and shall) add it to MyPoemList. so THERE!
    hopefully you will (if you wish to) find a human partner some day who you will love at least almost as much, and who WON'T MAKE A MESS or DANGLE FROM YOUR HAIR. but probably will sleep in late some days.
    thanks for sharing. :) Y.M. (Report) Reply

    You really have a cute way of expressing your feelings Goldheart B. One thing, you might want to change 'furry; ' friend to 'feathery' friend. I'm pretty sure birds don't have fur. I enjoyed that poem very much! (Report) Reply
