HOLDING MY PEACH FACED LOVE BIRD
I SHED SO MANY HOT TEARS........
ABE WAS QUICKLY COMING TO HIS LAST
MY FAITHFUL PET, FOR MANY YEARS


I CRIED TO GOD, AND BEGGED HIM
TO HAVE MERCY ON MY LITTLE BIRD
I REALLY TRIED TO KEEP MY FAITH
FEELING SURE MY PRAYER WAS HEARD


I KEPT THINKING OF MY TIME WITH ABE
AND HIS SWEET PLAYFUL WAYS
HOW HE'D SIT ON MY SHOULDER WITH PRIDE
I'LL REMEMBER HIM, ALL MY DAYS....


YOU SEE, GOD DIDN'T GRANT MY REQUEST
TO LET MY ABE STAY NOW
I GUESS IN THE END, HE KNEW BEST
KNOWING ABE SUFFERED..ALL THE WHILE


SOMETIMES WE DON'T WANT TO LET GO
HANGING ON TO WHAT WE HOLD DEAR
NOT REALIZING WHAT'S BEST FOR THEM
AND HOW MUCH "THEY" CAN BEAR


ABE DID HAVE AN AFFLICTION
WORSENING...AS TIME WENT BY
HE BECAME WEAKER, LOSING HIS ZEST
THEN CAME A TIME...HE DIDN'T EVEN FLY


WHEN ABE LOOKED UP INTO MY FACE
AND BREATHED HIS LAST BREATH
I SORELY CRIED MY HEART OUT
YET TRYING... TO ACCEPT HIS DEATH


THINKING ABOUT IT LATER
I KNOW THAT GOD HEARD MY PRAYER
BUT I REALIZED HE DIDN'T SEE FIT
TO LET MY ABE STAY HERE


HE KNEW ABE WAS VERY TIRED
AND HAD COME TO HIS END
GOD KNEW I'D HAVE THOSE MEMORIES
OF MY VERY SPECIAL FRIEND


THE LESSON IN THIS STORY
I LEARNED THAT VERY DAY...
IS TO ACCEPT GOD'S WISDOM, ON
HIS ANSWER...FOR WHATEVER IT
IS.... WE PRAY.
