He sits outside
He is hiding
Awaiting to be seen
I can hear you
Loudly and slowly
All other sound dissipates
As I listen to your
The tears stop
The angry voice
At the other end
Of the receiver
Is drowned out
Looking over me
I hear you
I feel you

Hi Ediie thank you for the advice! I think the owl is my spirit guide. :) I am glad that you got home safely and the owl helped you. :)

Sounds like the owl may be your spirit guide Caroline, follow its wisdom, it will guide you to safety, an owl warned me of danger the other night while driving and I got home safe.
