The Morning Swallow

Moving forward by looking back
Determined to not make the same mistakes again
Feelings come and feelings go
Feelings are all that ever remain in the end

And the swallow sings its morning song
As the dew drops glisten on the lawn
Illuminated by the breaking dawn
He knows not what it is to feel loneliness
Or a heart consumed by emptiness

Keeping safe by keeping it in
Cautiously reserving throws of affection
No more love but no more pain
No more enduring emotional rejection

And the swallow flies into the sky
As a teardrop wanders from my eye
Accompanied by a regretful sigh
He’s off to wherever the winds will take him
Never to feel his heart forsaken
