The sky will stay up there and meet the horizon
time will continue, and the tide that smoothes the shore
gulls will be searching for some food that washed up
we had our bed and breakfast but is there no more?
We traded our toys down at the playground
got first price for winning the soap box derby
fixed up an old clunker into a icon car
sort of reminds me of the movie called Herby.
Never walked the marble floors of Winchester cathedral
nor looked out from the Eiffel tower over the city
But I have discovered what many have not yet found
the greatest stadium on earth, no sighting? Such a pity.
Hope you have been in Vermont and had apple cider
with a peppermint stick in it and half pan of cornbread
its no ordeal to become a connoisseur of the green state’s finest
while you sip remember the time of the downhill race you led.
What has been beneath the blue dome will stay for our children
we must give up our seats to let them enjoy the show
I’ve been blessed with all of the creations laid before me
its time now for you to begin your visions so you will know.
Life began and it will end our journey come what may
but beneath that big blue sky there’s such a wondrous ambiance of a decor
spread out your blanket and watch the features on the big screen
it will be there today for you and for evermore.
