Pearl by Emma

My baby Pearl
you were my world
You meant everything to me.
But now you’re gone
I must be strong
For you to leave me
was so wrong.

You were sick and
now you’re well
Your’e happier now
it’s easy to tell.

I am in so much pain
Even though we’ll meet again.
Your empty cage the quiet room
I hope that I recover soon.

One day though we’ll walk together
Over the grass and
through the heather.
