The blue and black up there,
With a splash of purple and white,
From where we are down here,
Is nothing short of a beauteous sight.
And I often wonder,
What lies in that vast expanse,
I sit and ponder,
Over the sight which has left me in a trance.
The clusters of cotton candy-like,
Fluffy white clouds,
Which in my heart and mind strike,
A vision of heaven's court all around.
The sparkling studs,
Embedded in the sky,
The twinkling diamonds,
That dance when I close my eyes.
The gleaming shooting stars,
Leave a trail of pixie dust like mist,
And though they seem to be afar,
Shall fulfil my heart's desire in a second's gist.
She said she was going to utopia,
I deliberate over where she went,
She said she was moving on to the Numen's arena,
Unknown to her whereabouts - I sit and lament.
But when I look up at the ether,
I feel ever so reassured,
When I sit and stare into the azure,
I sense her presence, I feel secure.
For when I glimpse at the paradise,
The clouds form her calm face,
The stars her patient smile,
And I am then by my Grandma embraced.
So what truly lies in the Elysian Fields?
What are its treasures-yet to be unveiled?
Dear readers, the welkin but holds,
That which we lost-one we can no longer hold.
