Mocking Bird Chirp

Walking through a park one day to lament
I noticed a small companion
that lent its reign
As I walked the path
It followed me hither
As my thoughts wandered
It was if the bird chirped in response
My thoughts were all garbled
My stomach in knots
Yet when the path came to an end
I was awe-struck
For the bird had consoled me through
I felt better and alive
knowing it was the God in you
It was the chirp of a Mocking Bird
that brought hope, joy and resurrection
I only had to take one step and then a few more
for the universe took the others
and that is the reason I am here
