Little bird, don’t sit and wait for me!
My time is different here, you see.
I live a life that is long and full,
with time to waste and be dull.
Your life is shorter, you should fly!
Soar like an eagle up in the sky!
Pity me, bird, my time is long,
Yet I forget to enjoy your song!
Why is that so, oh bird, can you tell?
I should enjoy my long life so well!
Still, here I sit with my heavy heart,
so stressed that I don’t even know where to start.
Fly little bird, so precious your time,
but how I envy a life like thine!
