The Osprey Feather

An Osprey left a gift today
one you found while walking
along the path on your way

A short walk to get some air
the breeze so nice a slight rain
and the weather so very fair

Upon the trail you happened to see
a long lovely Osprey feather
and gave it to me

Your words this night rang true
was a most beautiful thing to hear
so clear and heartfelt from you

Before I was in your life
and you were in mine
you wore a mantle of strife

Now because your heart and mine
are no longer two but only one
the Osprey feather does us bind
