Little Bird

People somewhere see her smiling,
Hear her laugh, enjoying what I felt
Was mine sometimes. Those times
Have passed, and, chances are,
They will not come around again.
I've become a piece of granite,
Motionless and solid, changing only
Due to wear on me. She remains
A little bird, who sings and darts
From tree to tree, and, having
Fluttered far away, no doubt
Enchants all those around her,
As she once did me.
