MOURNING DOVE
(Steven Sellors)

I have a house – I have a home
I have a place
       where wild flowers grow
I have some trees
       where squirrels can nest
And mourning doves
       can take their rest

I have a dog – I have a song
I have to let the mystery roll on
I am alive – I am in love
I want to tell the mourning dove

But when she flew, she did not sing
The cold wind whistled on her wing

Oh do not grieve,
       sweet mourning dove
Your sad old song is a song of love

On the day when I was new
You held me once –
       no one held you
I think of you as a Mourning Dove
That only flew on wings of love

I think of you as a Mourning Dove
That only flew on wings of love

This is an adoptee to her birth mother. Lovely song.

--Stewie.
