Keep singing. ~ Rumi

The birds have 
flown to freedom, 

The cage 
lies empty. 

Your happy songs
bring to me
the scent of heaven.

keep singing.

~ Rumi

  1. Birds are free from the cage
    cage is empty from the birds

    Where have you flown from
    to be so happy

    I can smell eternity
    in your songs
