Clear blue sky, peace eternal
This morning’s sky, could be no clearer
Nothing, standing in the October sun’s way
Painting warm yellow sunlight across the yard and trees
Only the gentlest breeze—
That lifting the wings of angels
Coming, without notice
Departing, quickly in blessed silence
Dad held fast in their tender arms
Life prevailed, this tenth day of October
I went outside, smelled its sweet fragrance
Felt its comforting embrace in the wind
My heart fluttered, like a butterfly
A reminder, life and death, all part of one
