hold up the sky

you wanted me to hold up the sky

& it was all I could do

was walk around

my head down

searching for firmer ground

though try as I might

I could not hold on to you

you needing something more

than this fool writing the words

trying hard not to be a clown

& all I needed was your love

to see me as I was just

seeking my truth to live by

taking my days as they came

I knew that one day there would be

firmer ground to make my stand

but for you my lovely

tomorrow was too late for you to be

& if I didn’t cry enough as you left me

it wasn’t I couldn’t hold your sky

just that my head was down

searching for that firmer ground
