Alone Again and No More



I wrote about this lovebird sometime ago, about how it came rapping at our chamber door and refusing to leave. Tony went out of his way to buy this lonesome yellow chirper a partner and a complete supply of birdseed.

The pair became a source of shrieks of delight from our household. But after a few weeks, we found its partner dead, just like that. We didn’t know what happened and we went around with sad faces for two days.

So this yellow lovebird was once again alone.

Months passed by and one day, we found it also unmoving in its cage. It was gone as well.

A bird expert said our yellow pet was bound to die, it was too old.

Now we know why it never wanted to fly away when we saw it rapping at our chamber door. It had no energy to flap its wings anymore. And all along we thought the bird loved us so much it stayed.

I am back to watching the many brown birds that land and chirp on the plants and grass in our garden every day. They make me praise our Creator for making so many of them (of varied kinds) up in the sky.

They make me look up and thank Him for granting us grace even before we could ask.

I'm so sorry about you little bird. It's always hard when a pet passes on. I've dealt with that a few times when my dogs have passed away. It's always a sad time. Take care and cheer up.
