We wait
It is February
It won't be long now

Winter brought us the Robin's song
Sometimes the blackbird too

Spring is near
They will arrive soon
And sing us through the summer

Chiff-chaff, chiff-chaff
Oh Joy!
Waiting for the voice of spring

The day you died my heart broke
But so did my chains

No longer to see your eyes full of threat
Where once they filled with love

No longer to fear your decision of my failure
When once I was admired

No longer to tread on eggshells around you
For fear of abuse

I am free
And yet I will never be
A reflection

— The End —
