Nest Of Love

I come to you
Like a injured bird
On flightless wings.

Drawn to the safety
Of your healing arms
And soothing voice.

Broken and scarred,
I find my solace there,
There in your arms.

And you hold me,
Scared and trembling,
Close to you.

Softly you whisper
Words of encouragement,
Words of love.

In a heartbeat,
I lose myself in you,
And the healing begins.

You shelter me,
But do not cage me.
Let me try my wings.

Knowing all along,
That I may spread those wings
And fly away.

In turn hoping,
That the love you have showed
Will bring me back to your nest.

Hoot, this is lovely. It really flows, and I like that too!

Tenderly said ... spread your wings, no longer clipped ... fly little bird ... fly!
Return when you have completed the flight.
You did a BEAUTIFUL job on it, Ruth.
