I had watched a pair of blue birds in my front yard for weeks.
They had been making a nest.
I watched them carry sticks, and quickly go back for more.
I listened to them chirp and sing, and fly all around.
I was excited to see that new life would be coming to my yard!
My heart broke when I found him laying among my flowers,
He seemed perfect.
No bite marks, nothing.
I know one of my cats must have killed him,
but there is no visible damage.
I was taken by his beauty.
Bright blue feathers, shining iridescent in the sunlight.
Such a lovely creature!
I gathered an array of flowers from all around.
I arranged them in many ways, none seemed right, besides this.
All these flowers grow in the area they were building a nest.
I felt I had to show my love and admiration for him.
Every animal deserves respect,
in life and in death.
"Be with someone who you don’t have to hide from, in any way. Whether it’s your morning face before you’ve put your make up on, an embarrassing story to tell about something that happened on your way home, or an ambition you’ve had since you were six… make sure you end up with someone who knows all of it and still loves you. A person you can tell your whole life to is a person worth spending a life with.
