And When I Look Up

image

When I go outside on a sunny day,
And I look up,
I want to see that beautiful sky.
That deep, deep blue sky,
I love it so much….maybe more than anything.
I want to see it because it feels like…

like a warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold winter morning…

or like a cozy soft cuddly blanket–the kind that your mom keeps on the back of the couch for chilly, rainy nights.

When I go outside
On a sunny day
And I see that sky,
That deep, deep blue sky,
I know that no matter
what happens
that day,
When I look up it will be there.

And when I see that deep,
Deep blue sky,
And things do not go
Exactly right,
There will be something
that is good,
When I look up.

And if by chance that day,
Some dark, grey clouds
Come and smother the deep,
Deep, blue sky,
I will know the dark, grey clouds
Are really why I love my
Deep,
Deep,
Blue
Sky.

When I get home,
And the day has been long,
And the day has been hard,
I will curl up on my couch,
And reach for the cuddly,
Soft,
Blanket…

In the morning,
I will make a bowl of oatmeal,

And when I walk outside,
I want to see the sky…
Because I love it so much.

an inside job

there is judgement,
if you look behind,
with bitterness and rage,

the angry thoughts,
and memories,
invite you to
your
grave,

a soulful triumph
resonates,
the calling is quite clear,

it beckons you to
leave the dark,
your mind now free,
and

clear.

the letting go
uplifting,

expected losses naught,
you win

and now you know,
light never leaves,

as long as
love
is
sought…

….within.
