Am I really grieving for a parakeet?
I couldn't hug you -- too small
I couldn't cuddle you -- you weren't that kind of bird
And yet
Three years and seven months or so, you managed to work your way into my heart
You were a huge personality in a tiny feathery package
You brought a little joy in an otherwise lonely life
And for that, I'm grateful
And I grieve for you
Thank you Angel, I hope you felt my love too.
I miss you.

I'm so sorry to hear about Angel. When I lost Birdie I felt the same way. They're so tiny but have a big effect on our lives.
