I seriously want to print this out and have it somewhere on my wall, in large font. This was incredible and moved my heart (as your poems always do, dear Maple). The soft repetitions that grow louder and louder to never give up, that even if we do fall down, we will not be alone. We will be comforted through it all.
Your love as a mother and woman will reach not only your Bird but countless others. It's strong and unending.
