Blackbird

 

nevermore

Blackbird, you flew into my mind today
Questions started flooding my heart
Are you doing okay in your world of books?
Have you been able to rise and find a new start?

Blackbird, I hope you can say yes to that
You should be happy and carefree like the wind
That’s how I picture you in my memories
Always standing for your beliefs, refusing to bend

Blackbird, don’t become trapped in your own head
You don’t realize what a rare gem you are
Just because the outside world can’t always see it
Doesn’t mean you’re anything less than a shining star

Blackbird, please take care of yourself
I hope you find happiness in both life and love
Your heart is too pure to be eternally alone
Blackbird, I hope you find your darling Dove

    Reminds me of the last scene from the movie “Public Enemies” where the protagonist leaves a dying message for her, “Bye bye, blackbird.”

  3. Damn. That’s beautiful. I have always loved this message of ‘not looks, but heart’ and it does sadden me how people can’t seem to get a hang of it. Great poem. Cheers.
