The Robin Who Could not Sing

The robin would fly and spread his wings 

But he had no song, he could not sing 

He soared and flew high into the clouds 

He had affirmation from the crowds 

He flew higher than the other birds 

Many praised him and laughed at his words 

Though joy to others he would bring 

He had no song, he could not sing 

He used his wings but he could not hide 

The sorrow he felt deep down inside 

Other robins could not fly as high or long

But they could still sing out their song

He thought to himself, "What good are my wings?

If I can fly higher but I cannot sing?"

He left the world early, it felt so wrong 

For his whole purpose was to sing a song
