Sharing the Sky (if I only knew)

Updated on May 2, 2013

I’ll never know a cloud like you again
You didn’t mind raining on a parade
But then you’d let the sunshine in
You couldn’t help yourself each day
You’d drift into the room
Then you’d go on your way
I hoped you’d be different
But you’re just like nature’s way
The sky is not always blue or perfect

I’ll never know how you lived on the inside
There was always something dark
But then you’d take it all in stride
The shadows of a rain forest is all you know
You knew when to turn it on
And when to let it grow
It took some time to figure out why
But then it was too late
You needed the sun to share the sky
