oh...there you are




I found a cloud driven by the wind
and climbed aboard…
as we floated across the sky
I ask where we were going
and the cloud replied that
it was headed somewhere
just over there
oh, I replied
can I stop to see some old friends
sure..it answered back
you will able to
see a soul...a friend
a brother...your dad and mom
you will see their smiles
and feel their love again
because clearly
they have been waiting
for you

    1. thanks Joanne...our loved ones are still alive in our minds and in our hearts...it's probably not good to dwell on them but certainly they should never be forgotten...

  3. Oh... that would be so lovely wouldn't it. To see those we love once more but, I don't think I want to stay on the cloud, at least, not for a while yet :)

  7. Clouds are so much in the news these days. They are full of us and our information. I am reminded of this here and the ultimate triumph of imagination over science.
