    dotsI am the Blackbirddots

    Sitting on the picket fence
    Is one black crow.
    Symbolic window frame
    As it begins to snow.
    Iím here to replace and take,
    Treading warmth
    Clutching to your mistakes.
    Iím a messenger of the sky,
    Iíll remove the fear from your eyes.
    When you finally find sleep,
    You only silently weep.
    It isnít as bad as it seems.
    Let me help you
    Find precious dreams.
    Then Iíll leave and take to the air,
    And take the smell of your hair.
    In your eyes I will glow light,
    Always remain
    A distant satellite.
    When you're impaired
    And in distress,
    Your heart I will caress.
    You notice the house is a little chilly,
    In a vase on the table
    I left one white Lily.
    To remind you that
    No matter where you may be.
    I will perch in your soul
    For eternity.

      I liked it a lot. The blackbird metaphor is a nice touch. "I will perch in your soul for eternity" really ended the poem well. You're rhyming flows very well and is never dull or forced. Good work.

      Well, (maybe) MzJae is correct, but your poem is your poem. I liked it, but I have a question are you USMC? You left a always faithful on someone's page for a comment. I am just being curious.

      In the second line, 'it begins' was written twice and in 'When your impaired and in distress,' 'your' should be 'you're,' 'maybe' should be 'may be'...but otherwise... good
