Affection

für Freddi

Little bird
in it's cage
wants to fly
away

Little bird
much too big
was it's heart
today

Little bird
grown inside
craves a love
to stay

in it's cage
that isn't that -
not since
yesterday

Little bird
got the key
to the door

Little bird
waiting there
on the floor

brave and patient
bound and free
it's inner strength
is moving me.
