Little Sparrow

In memory of a Livi, the little girl in my neighborhood, who died when her family’s car was hit by a drunk driver. One year ago.

Little sparrow

fell from high

hit her head

and promptly died.

Momma bird

felt all alone

said, “Now this nest

is not a home.”

“We’re still here,”

brothers cried.

“We’re so sad

that sister died.”

“And I’m about,”

said Daddy bird.

But momma bird heard

not a word.

She tried to chirp.

She tried to sing.

She tried to do

most anything

to mend the place

within her heart

that little sparrow

left

when she fell.

Livin for Livi – remember Livi by doing a kind deed in her honor.
