Drifted Away...


I wanted to give her a sky,
She opted for just a cloud,
A patch of soft, white cloud,
In the azure sky. Then, she hid
Herself behind it, and with it,
Right before my two eyes,
Rode away in a graceful glide,
Slowly drifting away, to obscurity!

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
