Pretty Blue Sky

Pretty blue sky
Another one is taken.
Do you want to cry?
Grandmother said everyone must die.

Hear the news from many miles.
Your love one has passed on with a smile.
No more pain.
Nothing else to gain.
Issues unresolved.
Words spoken in vain.

Pretty blue sky
Another one is taken.
Do you want to cry?
Grandmother said everyone must die.

When you drop your tears at the door,
People will remember you celebrating the night before.
Now so much love on display...
Did you ever listen to what your love ones have to say?

Pretty blue sky
Another one is taken.
Do you want to cry?
Grandmother said everyone must die.


"Ave Maria" and "Near the Cross" are the requests.
The choir will sing at their best.
Admire the church adorned with beautiful pink flowers
Observe later the talking of naysayers and doubters.


Pretty blue sky
Another one is taken.
Do you want to cry?
Grandmother said everyone must die.

The sun will rise.
For a moment, it is bright.
Life fades...
Someday, we may see that final light.



Pretty blue sky
Another one is taken.
I want to cry.
We didn't get a chance to say goodbye.
But...
Grandmother told me everyone must die.
