My Albatross

We are not love birds
We don’t get to sit side by side
Day in & out
Year in & out

We are not magpie
We don’t get to hunt treasure
Day in & out
Year in & out

We are not penguins
We don’t get to share the kids
Day in & out
Year in & out

We are not Eagles
We don’t get to build the biggest home
Day in & out
Year in & out

We are Albatross
We are for life
We may not see eachother for half a year or more
But when the time comes


We know where we belong
We will fly over oceans to be together again
We will wait lovingly for that day to come
Patiently wait for the fleeting moments we can raise kids together


Take each small moment to build a nest ‘for now’
And cherish every touch, kiss, look, as separation looms


Because we are Albatross
We always find our way home
We always find each other
