Just like a bird, you flew freely into our lives,
You knew exactly what house number we lived in,
How the house was built and the colour of our walls,
You sat on our window sill and waited patiently for us.
Each day, we would run to the window and greet you,
But you would fly away, stealing pieces of our hearts,
So we could chase you down the road and up the alleys.
Each day you gave a little more of yourself to us,
We seen that spark in you burn so brightly,
You made us laugh, and you made us feel loved,
We thought you would be in our lives forever and ever,
But the truth is nothing lasts forever and ever.
Without any notice you made a choice and left us behind,
You did not come back to the window sill each day,
You did not play your stupid little games we thrived on.
We became lost and could not find our way for a long time,
We realised it never rains and it never pours,
It pelts down like one billion hail stones that never seem to end.
This is our goodbye to you, something you never gave us.
We hope you have fun on your next adventures.
