Whether we are taken from under the cover of clouded sky
Your indifference is without reason
No thoughts of asking why...
Did you know that just beyond was a Milky Way stare?
Is it not continuous of being?
Save for the night, is not its beauty still yet there?
Have you ever known the nature of cause that still make us sigh?
To ask why geese pair for life?
Is to know a wonder
There is reason as to why they don't cry
To lighten the load of two hearts
Four wings do cheat
But, only the air - when they fly
Therein lies ahead a child's most ominous gray of days
Yet, for now, still shown under the sunniest of ways
This is the portrait of our humanity
And from our own Private Idaho to pay!
