Smoke Signals - Poem by Robert Macdonald

Heaven be my fate
For a little while
At least as far as I can see

Need water from the well
I’ve walked for miles
I fear I’ll draw too deep

Memories grow old
On distant isles
Hear them calling in the breeze

A daydream hides behind
A child’s smile
Shines through eyes of white moonbeams

If I stare into the sun what will I see?
If the earth falls into space where will we be?
One day we’ll all break apart and float to sea
How will we find each other then?

Smoke signals
In the sky
Wounded bird
Go and fly
These cloud paved roads
Will never die
Smoke signals
In the sky
