about

Would that I could drift above the clouds;
To see all that lies beneath.
The vast expanses reaching out to the horizon,
The fingers of green and blue.
Those grasping hands, outstretched -
Spread across so small a frame.
And then, to gaze above;
To watch as the swarm of stars
Flies across boundless space.

Time stands still;
Eternity becomes a single moment.
All that ever was, is, or will be
Is placed in the palm of my hand.
A flickering flame,
The breath of life.
The light of countless souls,
Their stories known only to me.

And then, to wake;
To see the blue of the ceiling above my bed;
To know that it was never real.
To feel the chill of early morning,
As the first rays of sun peek through my window.

Would that I could drift above the clouds;
To see all that lies beneath.
To sleep, perchance to dream...

Would that I could drift above the clouds;
To see all that lies beneath.
The vast expanses reaching out to the horizon,
The fingers of green and blue.

To watch as the swarm of stars
Flies across boundless space.

A flickering flame,
The breath of life.

Their stories known only to me.

And then, to wake;
To see the blue of the ceiling above my bed;
To know that it was never real.
To feel the chill of early morning,

Would that I could drift above the clouds;
