To others, you were just a robin-

Singing at dusk by a caravan.

You were so much more to me. You see, I felt you knew:

Knew that this was special. This few days together.

You understood that we were there to stay. 

We were your audience, and you performed. Beautifully.

You even granted us a lie-in. As if you waited to hear us up

Before singing the morning in.

Even at the very end, you blessed our departure

And I hear you still.
