O' Blue Skies of Childhood

Updated on October 21, 2019

When Theresa writes poetry, the inspiration comes from her or her family's true life experiences, which results in dramatic poetry.


Remembering from a Child's Perspective . . .

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

As seen through a child's eyes

Your infinitely azure skies,

Offer a continual surprise.

O' blue skies of childhood

Where have you gone,

Under which I joyfully played?

Thank You, thank You, is what I did say.

Please come back to me, is what I now pray.

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

Nowhere are those skies of sapphire.

The ones I do so most desire.

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

You were most assuredly there.

Am I now just no longer aware?

Blindly, I continue to stare.

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

O' dear child, You reveal, aging eyes do not despair,

Over things seen which are not so fair,

For the blue skies of your childhood are still there!

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

O' dear child, You reveal again,

Your vision clouded by the world's deception

Has given you an altered perception.

O' blue skies of childhood,

Where have you gone?

With childlike praise, now, I seek You first,

For it is You alone, dear Lord, I really adore.

There they are, in their entire splendor,

O' blue skies of childhood.

I wrote this poem during a time of when everything in the world did not "appear" new and fresh in my eyes, and I just began thinking of what a beautiful color of blue the skies were when I was a child ---they just seemed to be brighter and more vivid, but then of course, that was only my perception at the time I wrote this poem, which was on May 28, 2006!
