Song of the sky

Wisps of cotton, ever so sheer....
You sashayed into my life shining and clear...
And I fell in love with your brilliance,
Dazzling in your glory, sparkle and ebullience.

Laughing, cavorting, we danced together,
To the pure moments of bliss we surrendered,
The breeze, our friend pushed us flirtatiously ,
A cosmic synchronised dance we danced, so joyously.....

Happiness, happiness in the depths of our souls,
Waiting and craving for joy some more.
There was no strife, there was no fight, 
Everything on our canvas seemed so right.....

And then, woe betide, all that joy you couldn't hold, 
All those happy tears in your fold,
They fell on the parched Earth below, 
And drenched it to it's very core......

But where oh where did you disappear out of sight?
When we could have the Universe with our might,
Sigh, sigh, sigh, why did true love not survive,
Inspite of our union that felt so right.....

Now I cry and laugh alone,
Blue and anguished on my own,
For that soft touch I crave, I long,
I wish we could jointly sing our song....
