The Clear Sky you used to provide

As the days go by, this arduous feeling grows.

As I lay there, I can picture your faces in the patches of the sky.

Dark and grey, I begin to feel your tears run down my face,

It was time for me to let go. 

Oh, where am I now, without you two, I cry.

I hear your anger, I hear your thoughts. 

Forgive me for the bitter strain. 

If there is one thing I cannot live without, it is your presence. 

I seem to have taken it for-granted,

All you two wanted was a clear sky,

I am now struggling to find that shine.

Without you two,

Oh, where are you now?

Without you two,

Oh, this arduous feeling grows.

Foundered with regret, 

You too, will comprehend. 

You can see the outline of my face in those dots we call stars,

My laugh through the hum and chrips,

My smile in those around you,

and as you close your eyes you can see mine, 

My touch through the warm rays that wrap around you every morning

I'm still here, While you both are there.

Without you two, I'm still oblique, but shaping my edges. 

Oh, Where are you now?

I found me, while without you, I cannot be.

Thank you for what you have taught me,

All you two wanted was a clear sky.
