Black Bird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
by Lennon/McCartney

maybe we might add:

take this sunken heart and learn to sing...

sing.

Mabey this bird has forgotton how to fly or never truly new. It's good to be able to tell the broken to get up, you're healed, but we also need to remember that broken bones do heal yet often the residual pain remains, sometimes for a lifetime. So how do we, and they, incorporate that into the christian walk of love and joy? How do we help ourselves and them?
