Clouds In The Sky... A Second Chance (a poem by debileah aka deborah leah krempa)A Poem by debileah
Clouds in the sky, a second chance
Look up into the heavens, as far as you can see
Out there is eternity, the way life was meant to be
Up so far beyond one's own imagination
Don't you know we came from beyond the stars
Sunrise to sunset, we watch the sky in awe of it
I wonder sometimes about how it all began
Not so concerned about how it may end, as all things must
Thinking about how we wonder of heaven and hell
How will we fare, when we arrive there
Every now and then, as a poet, I ponder these things
Sky so azure blue, clouds so soft, fluffy, white
Keep shining oh bright nova that warms the earth
Your destiny is our fate, as we stand at the gate...
A second chance, such a romantic notion, a conscious thought
Stars that twinkle in the night sky, as I sleep and dream
Entertaining my own ideas, questioning my own mortality
Coldness of winter winds swirling, the color of blue turns gray
Open fields in the spring, flowers bud and bloom, birds sing
Nestling in the warmth of sultry summer days...
Dried leaves fall so gently from the forests trees
Chances are that I might make a wish upon a falling star
Hoping for my life to be a dance like that of the daffodils
A second chance, has been gifted to me, to breathe again
Nostrils filled with the freshest air, nothing can compare
Crying tears of joy and sorrow, uncertain of tomorrow
Elements of life, I behold, as I watch the clouds in the sky
