TWO SKIES


Remember this night,
When I'm gone, kiddo:
You and me
And a skyful of stars.

Look at you there,
Your eyes full of light.
Your sky's ablaze with wonder.

My sky's an old amigo -
And the wonder is that we go
On and on and on:

Father and child,
Farther and farther,
Into the starry blue.

I stand between infinity and you.
You stand between oblivion and me.
See?
No?
Eyes too full of sparkle?

Heyho -
I'm going in.
You stay on.
Remember this night,
When I'm gone.
