The sky

Ooh, the sky
carrier of my favourite colour,blue
Whenever i feel down and blue
All I gotta do,is look up to you
And all my problems reduce leaving only a few
I envy the birds who fly through you
Sometimes,I search through words to describe this feeeling,praying to find a clue
But the search is often fruitless, for words cannot describe you
You are so close to the place of peace
Now,I no longer have bad thoughts,or feelings of sadness
'Cause just thinking about your glory  gives my heart happiness
Sometimes,when my eyes stare fixedly into you,I instantly receive a thousand fears
But that can never be compared to your showers of love and care
It is so wonderful that I find you everywhere
I wonder and ponder,would you ever grow old?I guess not even in a thousand years.
