A little birdie chirped in my ear
There is someone with you here
He has been trying to make you hear
That he has been here for more than a year.
The little birdie whispered
He is not so good I heard
He had liked it when you shattered
And had feasted every wail you uttered.
My little birdie warned
He is but unarmed
But i know you would be harmed
His invisibility can get you alarmed.
Lovely little birdie cried
To my best I have tried
But now I have to leave your side
To be from being a birdie that died.
Birdie dear birdie, don’t go away
Where is he now, say
For my life, please stay
Away from this unseen presence, show me a way.
Little birdie, little birdie, now I am alone
In this darkness with me is only a man now bone
To myself, I am now left to moan
As I swallow the depth of the darkness that had grown.
Sweet birdie, lovely birdie, you have been a good friend
To be with me till the very end
While now you get busy with a different errand
With the blackness I blend.
