We Carry Our Sky With Us

Listen to poem:
We Carry Our Sky With Us David J Walker We carry our sky with us As we fly Through uncharted space And the dust of our departed Accompanies us Asking only that we Write down their names And present them at the end of the race Through the unmeasured Length of eternity Are we there yet? I asked with the certainty that I carry with me The breath of God Furtively holding it in Knowing that someday It is to be returned We Carry our sky with us Uncertain of life Without gravity

Thank you, Michelle. "Ethereal" seems to be the perfect description for what often goes through my head.
