A Glimpse of Blue

Saw blue sky today

And remembered happiness

And summer holidays in the glen

And daddy’s smiling face


Now I see that sky again

Catch that glimpse of blue

Peacefulness is all around

Can it now be true?


Was it standing at the grave?

Michael by my side

That blowing wind strong westerly

Blew all cares aside


Now my growing grandsons

Are all my care and joy

And Michael in his manhood

My lovely son my boy


And old age is not misery

As I have feared and felt

The child I was the boy I knew

How the cards were dealt


I flourished and I failed awhile

Then sank out of sight

But I surfaced and I’m sailing now

And Today? Today is bright
