Both Sides Now

Both Sides Now Billowing clouds up above Sometimes smoky or just dust Bluebirds maneuvering through While Butterflies withdrew All my past loves float away As in vapored clouds today Becoming concealed by the moon Only returning in afternoon Consequently standing here Between the earth and atmosphere Taken from my innocence As I look back and reminiscence Memories only display A vivid image I’ll downplay Recalling this won’t be allowed I can see from both sides now Uncertain and feeling confused Not knowing what my life will do Covered in a canopy of tears Wrapped in a trap of fears Consequently standing here Between the earth and atmosphere Taken from my innocence As I look back and reminiscence Margaret Franceschini August 1, 2014
