Grey clouds float through a pale blue sky
Over a lake, gentle mountains raising up
As I watch, I certainly know
You breathed this same oxygen.
Through splintered rays of light
Shining down through a deep, green forest
Remember, remembering you
Shining in those golden beams.
Those gentle summer breezes
Touching my skin lightly
I can’t forget, forgetting
This moment of peace and ease.
This is a better way to recall you
Better than those nighttime recollections
Where you visit me and pretend
Like we are together, here and now.
So come to me everyday
Through nature’s lingering call
Leaves, breezes, animals
Sunsets giving away to twinkling stars.
