in the
woods i found a friend
he was already dead
but i could hear
all the words
that he ever
said

i said
hey how are you now
seems there’s quite a crowd
in my head the echoes
bounce about
and they sure
resound

how can
i be sure you’re not
another one ive got
an imagination thats
stationed to my
spot

he said
i was once a bird
i fell alone unheard
my wings broken
my scream just a
chirp

my ghost
in your shirt pocket it will live
just keep it warm and give
it shelter from the
weather and the
wind

take and
nourish it back to health
to the feelings it once felt
and i promise i’ll be
sure you’re never by
yourself

ghosts are
easy to keep up with when
its birds that they were in
for their wings dont
really die they just
re-begin.
