Looking Up at the Sky

I look up at the sky,
I think of you and can’t help but smile,
As the birds in their pairs swoop by,
I want spend more time with you even if only for a short while.

To hold you close and wipe away your tears,
And say lasting words that will always remain,
Those words will banish all your fears,
Words to help you forget the pain.

I think of you every moment of each day,
Silently smiling,
Thinking of all I have to say,
Like a song bird who sings.

The words will flow,
True and fair,
To tell you that which you already know.
