House Sparrow
by Mario Gerada

Little tiny sparrow
unnoticed by the mob,
shining in the sunlight
flying freely
like a poet’s dream,

Little tiny sparrow
eating, cleaning
flying from one boat to another
living thoughtlessly
trusting in God,

Little tiny sparrow
if you fall down,
on the ground,
probably most of us won’t notice,
but am sure
Jesus will shed a tear
and lift you up
and give you life
to live forever
in His presence.
