ACROSS THE SKY

 

Sunlight sparkles on the water,

Like moonlight in your eyes;

I can only remember,

After we have said, "Good-bye!"

 

Free bird flies away from me

And I watch, as it disappears,

Thinking were I will be,

Lost to you by passing years,

Looking out across the sky.

 

Long path leads me to nowhere,

But I must go to the end;

Finding memories

On a road-sign fading there;

Walking up this hill alone.

 

Moonlight passes behind the clouds,

As you did, back when you left me;

I'm a d-y-i-n-g heartbeat,

In a life where you are free.

 

Free bird flies away from me

And I watch, as it disappears;

Thinking where I will be,

Lost to you by passing years,

Looking out across the sky.

 

Free bird flies away from me

And I watch, as it disappears;

Think where I will be,

Lost to you by passing year,

Looking out across the sky. . .

Author's Note

Christina May Shanaberg
This was written, one night, in a fleabag motel in Perry OH, about a mile or two from Lake Erie (try to find a nice room there, without a reservation, during the on-season,) while the children were sleeping.

This song has taken on a whole new meaning for me, since the death of Dennis.

Wow, this was so beautiful! I loved the way it flowed, it was almost eloquent.. Very interesting and thoughtful. It shed some light on time, how abstract it is, and yet how deeply it affects us and everything around us.. Thanks for sharing:)
