The Blackest of Crows

I remember the day
My Daddy said “Hey”
“Let’s get out and go get you a worm”
I recall the quick flight
Through the dark of the night
As we flew and we flew, though I squirmed
I said “Wait for me, Dad!”
He said “Come, don’t be drab!”
As he beckoned me faster and fast
I remember that day
When my Dad flew away
As he left me and Mom in his past
For so long were we lost
All emotions were crossed
We were family, at least so we had thought
And I will never forget
Watching Mom as she wept
Trying hard to console but could not
All their lives they’d been one
Oh Dad, what had you done?
Just how could you leave us alone?
But on each other we leaned
And as bad as it seemed
Together we raised that dark tone
I remember that day
When my flew away
As he left me and Mom in his past
Now, as I fly with my son
Watch him try to outrun
I just grin at the love we’ve amassed
