Poem for Betty

I saw a cardinal fly today
and thought of you again...
the way you loved to hear its song
spring forth upon the wind.

I miss the times you sang for us
before your soul took flight
and left us with an emptiness;
a longing for your light.

I hope we'll reunite one day
if even for a while,
in dreams or some place heavenly
where I can see you smile.

Until that day, I'll look for you
in every bird that sings
and soars up where the angels fly
with you upon their wings.
