As I held you that day and I rocked you And we said our last good-byes, I knew that you were leaving me When I looked into your eyes.
Myheart was breaking because I knew No Matter how I tried Nothing could help or bring you back And I was losing you!
Your love was great though, Your life was short, And you cannot be replaced. Because you see, dear Nina', You're in a corner of my heart ! FLY FREE
Nina' was a beautiful female, blue front Amazon hatched September 21, 1998. She was sick from the beginning with a "frozen" crop (the food would not pass). I treated her with anti-biotics and anti-fungal medicine and after three weeks, she seemed normal. Little did I know that the medicine, in such a small creature, could cause malignant tumors. But the Veterinarian said if I had not treated her with the medicine, she would have died much sooner. She lived 6 months and in that time, stole my heart as no other bird has. She was very loving and affectionate and I truly miss her. She was buried in our yard with all her toys and a large stone marks her grave. Now she is flying free.
