A sapling I was in a land that’s too dry
Reaching for sunshine that seemed far too high
Drier than sand and yearning for nourish
Aching for some way to open and flourish
Yours was the first step that opened my eyes
You let yourself fly and deliver surprise
You opened your heart out, and really went native
A book that is open, a mind so creative
I followed your path and emerged from the dark
The touch paper lit now, allowing my spark
I’m into the sunshine and un-barren lands
Clutching this lifeline with both of my hands
Thank you for showing me how to be true
And not shy away from the things that I do
Such birds, brightly coloured are rarely so gauged
Your beauty and vibrancy should never be caged
