What Penguins Teach Us
What Penguins Teach Us

She stood there looking forward - the eyes there piercing
Her wing broken, unable to be moved, torn, feathers adrift

She held there under her -- her egg, comforting her unborn
Of all the things that could happen, at this time -- this hurt

The wing broken, grew painful in the wind, standing resolute
The rain and clouds were beckoning over the hill top

  This was when she felt the first drop, and then the second
  Thinking it was rain, thinking the storm was to come

  It was not until later, that she felt of it, that she understood
  It was the tear drop of her true love, comforting her, keeping her warm.
