*windowpane

i sadly woke up this morning
rolled out of bed
that hummingbird is still perched?
why is she so still?
why does she look so sad?
i have to help her fly
she can't live her life like this
sitting on the windowpane
imagining life
instead of living it
this might be tough
i don't know how to make her fly again
maybe if i care for her
she has to be hurt
why else would she want this life
no one ends up on the windowpane happy
i put a dollop of cherry syrup on the edge
that should attract some food for her
shes so small and delicate
is she supposed to be like this?
fragile and vulnerable?

there's no happy ending here
it never occurred to me
that she was just old
tired and wanting to rest
wanting peace and seeing my windowpane
my windowpane
as her safest of safe havens
there's no happy ending here
she never was just going to
fly away someday
i saw isolation and hurt
and she saw a peaceful setting
to finally allow herself to end
