If I were the sky

If I were the sky
You and I would be far apart
But at least I wouldn’t have to try
To keep myself in your heart

For if I were the sky
I know you would remember me
Whenever you look up and sigh
I would be there, wherever you see

If I were the sky
You would be too far to reach
Oh, even if you could fly
You’d just make in my skin a breach

But that’s fine, too

For if I were the sky
I would always see your face
Every time you laugh or cry
You’d be here all the while, in my embrace

Forever
