A Poem To Raise Your Spirit(s)

Look to the Sky to see the Light

For when you hang your head

You cannot see the stars

When you raise your gaze

Then you raise your vision to beyond what was marred

Do not strip your intentions

To swim with the dark shadows beneath the surface of the sea

Instead make friends with the waves at the top,

as it is with them you should be.

If Only I Were A Little Bit Taller

Sitting upon my Daddy’s shoulders

I could see into the distance

Peering over the heads and obstacles

I could see far more than I imagined

However as I got older

And his shoulders, well they got smaller

No longer could I sit aloft

I Wish I Were Just A Little Taller

The smoke in the distance

Wasn’t signals from the fire

Rather it was life approaching

If Only I Were Taller

I could have seen around the banks

And crossed over the raging seas

Ahead to the calm clear waters

A painted life of luxuries

Alas that wasn’t to be

And hindsight is my friend

And this is the lesson I learn

From now until the end

Being Taller Gave Dad The Advantage

Although He Too Knew Hindsight

As Lessons Are Learnt From Above

No Matter What Your Shoulder Height
