‘I love you’


It was such an awesome dayand I stopped to stare up at the sky.My heart skipped a beat as I heard you speakwhen you asked the angel, “Why?”
“I wrote ‘I love you’ in the skyas big and as plain as can be.How can she stand down there and look up hereand still not be able to see?”
The clouds were broken and thin,and swirled randomly through the air.I searched and strained at all that remainedof the swirls of white still there.
The angel’s voice was soft and lowas I smiled and raised my brow,and I heard her say in the strangest way“She’s starting to see it now.”
There’s a bittersweet peace in my souland a sense of awesome prideknowing you’re up there writing words in the air,and our love has never died
