Fleeting bird

Fleeting bird
With wingspan so large
Fleeting
Fleeting bird

I did not see you
until you got up to go
Fleeting bird
In the night
You flapped your wings
And went out of sight

I did not know you were there
Right in front of me
This whole time
Seeming to be watching

Waiting
But you withstood your time
And gave up
Before I could even
Glance up

Then flew away
with nothing
But the view
Of a great opportunity
Fleeting
Flying away
