our sky

one of the last texts Justin sent me before he left the country and most of our communication was cut off said something along the lines of:

"i hate being so far away from you. i guess i'll just have to look up at the sky and know that you're under the same sky, too."

which inspired a poem :)

our sky

when my heart is missing you
and tears fill up my eyes
I will look up at the sky and think of you
I'll remember when we went as a family to fly a kite
we were happy, the sky was so blue
that's why the sky makes me think of you

when I long just to hear your voice
and I wonder how you are
I'll look up at the sky
and feel your love in my heart
I'll remember walking with you at night
under a canopy of stars
then maybe for a time I'll forget
how far away you are

when I struggle to recall
the feeling of your touch
I'll look up at the sky
and know that you love me so much
I'll remember the moment you asked me to be your wife
underneath a springtime sky
with clouds floating my

when I miss your voice
and wonder where you are
I'll look up at the sky
and know you're not that far
