Ode To My Sweet Songbird

written by: Donna Africa

@DonnaAfrica

 

My sweet Songbird
has taken flight
and flown away
leaving me this day
without you!

All I have left
is a fleeting moment
that we once shared in time
a magical induced night
feeling as one
before you took flight!

Leaving me wishing
and wanting you more
needing you to stay
beside me, forever more
never tiring of your sweet song
together where we belong!

A hunger so raw and deep
embedded inside of me
that every time we meet
you impact my heart so
that I can hardly speak
and I have to catch my breath
and plead with you not to go!

But go you must
as you belong to another
but you will always be
My Sweet Songbird
and there could be no other
I await for your return
and a new song to be heard!

NOVEMBER 2016 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
I call myself Donna Africa "The Queen of Dreams" as I relocated from my homelands and motherland Africa to the UK in 2004 to realise and conquer my dreams of yesteryear today!
I was inspired to write poetry by Rodriguez (Cold Fact Fame) Keats (when I sat under the Plum Tree) and Shaka Zulu famous King & warrior and renown for uniting all the tribes as ONE!
I hope my poems inspire and connect as one as this is my dream, vision and life journey!
With Luv, Light and Liberty!
