"Beyond The Same Clear Skies"

As a child    
I would watch from my bedroom window      
perched on my bunk bed      
I would gently sketch      
the tops of houses      
the sunsets      
the clouds      
the skies.      
Years later I view the same skies      
from a older,      
wiser perspective      
together we survey this      
great canopy the sky      
except your somewhere else    
we are together alone      
i miss you.      
Beyond clear skies      
I am mesmerized in skies of majestic splendor      
I see the universe for what it is      
I see an expanding mass      
I see flickering embers of fading light  
a rubber band waiting to snap      
as time and space collapse.      
I see multiple and parallel realities      
each containing a tantalizing      
selection of infinite possibilities.      
I see distant galaxy's and far off stars      
maybe i should name them after you?      
jet streams become paper chains      
but its your eyes that bring me back.      
Though miles apart      
we remain connected      
under the same clear skies.      
...And many years ago      
that same young child    
still perched on his bunk bed.      
he sketches the      
the sunsets,      
the clouds,      
the skies,      
.....and your smiling face.
