The sparrow that’ll fly away tomorrow

Your comforting words heal me
don’t channel them into arguments that can hurt
the big rocks shelter me from the sun and the heat
yet the pebbles and stones can stumble my feet
as much as I like you to hold my hands
I also want to find time to achieve what I’ve planned
this pouring rain refreshes me
albeit it turns into a flood, it can drown me
if you believe in me, you will always understand what I need
how much is right and how much is a lot
if you want to work it out, you will always find out
for we need to have common grounds
if we are at different wavelengths, different mindsets
else everything will just come to an end
this will be the story of the sparrow that’ll fly away tomorrow
this will be the story of the sparrow that’ll fly away coz of sorrow

The sunlight warms my world
but the scorching heat can leave me burnt
the rushing wind pushes my wings forward
but the storm can tear me apart
as much as I like to hear your voice
we must enjoy few moments of silence
these roses enrich me with their fragrance
albeit it’s prickles can bring me grievance
if you believe in me, you will always understand what I need
what is right and what is not
if you want to work it out, you will always find out
for we need to have common grounds
if we are at different wavelengths, different mindsets
else everything will just come to an end
this will be the story of the sparrow that’ll fly away tomorrow
this will be the story of the sparrow that’ll fly away coz of sorrow
