BEYOND THE BLUE SKIES

By John Thomas Tuft

Are you someone’s prayer, asked the sage.

What if this is all the love we ever get?

Came the answer from beyond the blue sky,

Would it cut down on all your regret?

Where my questions can go on forever…

Does praying all night open up ears?

When a raindrop rolls across the glass is it dying?

Came the answer from beyond the blue sky,

Is the answer found in all of your crying?

Where my questions can go on forever…

Does drowning our sorrows ease someone’s pain?

If the devil calls our name must we go all in?

Came the answer from beyond the blue sky,

What if love is from where we begin?

Where my questions go on forever…

Can we break the rules about making rules?

Has a rule ever changed anyone’s mind?

Came the answer from beyond the blue sky,

Do we ever see if we were never blind?

Where my questions go on forever….
