Wounded Wings

©1996 Nick Robinson (FTH Ch 7, pg 98)

.

I found a bird with a wounded wing

And nursed it back to health again

I healed its wounds and gave it strength

And then so soon away it went

Well I guess it seems it goes to show

With wounded wings they’re bound to go

And I guess it means it’s safe to say

Heal wounded wings - they’ll fly away

 

For a wounded wing on a crying bird

Unable to sing but trying to be heard

Is like a wounded wing on a baby dove

Just trying to sing it’s songs of love

And to heal these wounds is my disease

As the doctor of this aviary

I perform my knack of surgery

Then nurse them back so caringly

 

But I guess it seems it goes to show

With wounded wings they’re bound to go

And I guess it means it’s safe to say

Heal wounded wings - they’ll fly away

 

And sometimes I’ll hear the distant sound

That these birds are still around

Sailing in along a searing breeze

They sing their songs of being freed

But none stop in to sing hello

Just spread their wings and off they go

But I remember what I did

And how they got all I could give

 

So I guess it seems it goes to show

With wounded wings they’re bound to go

And I guess it means it’s safe to say

Heal wounded wings…they’ll fly away

The End
