I posted these verses a few days ago on BBC. I hope they will help a tiel owner who is very sad right now.

I loved your warmth and optimism
Your happy little ways.
But has it come to this, my Sweet,
That you've lived out your days?

I cannot bear to think about
The truth that you are dead.
I need you on my shoulder, Love
And to stroke your feathered head.

I wrap your perfect, silent form
In the most precious cloth I own.
I mark your grave and realise
You were only here on loan.

I make a conscious effort
To overcome despair
And fix upon the debt I owe
For the joys of love and care.

So, thank you, maker of my bird,
For his loyal, little heart.
It was a privilege to share his life
Before we had to part.

Take care of him on my behalf
And make him very glad
That he has flown to be with you,
And I'll not be so sad.
