Today I laid on my back under a tree, looking up at the sky, its wisps of clouds dancing in the beautiful blue heavens.
I breathed in the crisp, cool air and closed my eyes as thoughts flooded my mind.
Unexpected tears gently escaped as I thought of lost love, loneliness, my father’s upcoming death anniversary.
As these feelings lingered, I had no choice but to let the breeze take my tears and send them through the air, back up to the clouds where they belong.
