I Saw A Cloud
I saw a cloud pass by today
It reminded me of you
It was just one cloud out of many,
but out of all the clouds in the sky,
I saw it. It caught my eye and my eyes lingered
on it until it hid behind a bigger cloud
I knew it was there still, waiting a moment
before showing itself again
And there it was, with its gentle curves
and mysterious nature, one moment this shape, then the next moment another.
As the cloud passed by the sun,
it grew more bright and cheerful, but the further away it drifted, the darker it became.
It’s 4:38 now and you’re raining, and the sky is dark.
I SAW A CLOUD!
