The Birdie on My Shoulder
From the beginning you fought for me
That fight would continue for many years in many forms.
Your strength was always present even when we were apart.
You assured me that whenever I had trouble all I had to do was look on my shoulder
On my shoulder a little bird sat watching – that Red Robin was you.
You watched over me as I spoke my first words, took my first steps and ventured out into the world.
As I ventured into the world you assured me that you would be there, “I’m the little bird on your shoulder” you said.
With every step I’ve taken since I’ve paused to think “What would my little birdie think?”
My birdie said “Reach for the sky, there are no limits if you work hard at it.”
When the ceiling seemed short and I couldn’t see my birdie. You said take your arms, wrap them around you and squeeze.
That ever present hug is what I’m holding on to, because my birdie still watches over me, but she has taken flight and is perched on the right side of God.
