by Sharon Hurndon

As I look out the window
At the blue skies – clouds slowly rolling by
I wonder where are they going
And grin with a sigh

I think about how beautiful they are
When I see that soothing blue
I welcome the calm feeling I get
And only want to be near you

I close my eyes and can only imagine
That you are looking down at me
Can you see me squinting, trying to get a glimpse
Having to accept
That this is just how it has to be
