Tree And Bird

My body
was in the hospital bed
but I didn’t know
where I was

Words were too much
Legs couldn’t carry me
I didn’t remember

Eyes were closed
most of the time
but when I opened
them
I looked through the window
and saw a tree
with a bird in there

Leaves moved
the bird moved
I didn’t move
Still, like dead

Days passed
I didn’t know
I floated away
out of time
but always back
to the tree
to see the bird

Was it you, my love
that had flown
across the ocean
to keep me alive
