a little songbird (poem)

there’s a little songbird in my heart
you hear that clear, sweet melody? so far
beyond the urge within me to lie down
ashamed enough that I would go to ground

I hear the echo clearly in my soul
of Light shining so brightly, as if I know
a secret I have only just forgot
the One who saw my fully and who bought

my life with Love so perfect, for His love
laid down His own and bought me with His blood
this the source of that small, perfect song
I listen to the songbird and go on
