As my awkward tears fell
Against the Sky dressed in majestic blue
And jewels of sparkling sunlight
She looked down upon me and asked
“Why so dreary child?”
I shrugged my weary shoulders in reply
For what could one truly say
To the goddess of the Sky?
“Does my sunlight not warm your bones?
Do the clouds not make you dream of a better place?” she asked
I swallowed and lowered my head
For her words made my face red
With all this beauty in the world
All this wonder around me
And even the Sky to pity my tears
How could I feel this way?
How could I want to die?
How could I want to leave this world?
And all this beauty behind?
“There there child,” she said
“Sadness touches us all. But it is important to remember that there is always someone who loves you
There is always someone who yearns for your smile, someone who truly cares.
Do not ever forget that you are never alone and that someone in this world considers your heart their home”
