I Built For Us....


I built for us a little house

way up in the sky

where we can go and visit

or at least that we can try.

It nestles up amongst the clouds

but isn’t what it seems,

for this, it is our sanctuary

in a world of dreams.

I have a boat that takes me there,

I never need to steer,

it finds it’s way there every time,

it knows when you are near.

And for a while we can pretend,

we’ll live the perfect life

and leave behind the problems,

all the troubles and the strife.

And when it comes to waking,

and we both have to go,

there’s something that’s imperative

that you need to know.

This house is well constructed

and it’s always going to stay,

a place for us together

whenever we do find our way.

Nice poem Hully. And a nice metaphor for hope. But does anyone ever get to that better place in the sky or is it just out of reach?

Well, this is just a house in the clouds, Lucas, nothing more. Thanks for reading.

And it's so well-built it'll be sitting up there forever!
Thanks, Mike!
