I find myself looking up at only sky

Never mind the bare branches of a lonely

family of trees

Never mind the sad existence of the

empty hope life can bring

Never mind the heart’s desire that lay

in squalor forbidden to grow.

I only see the sky

I only feel the dampness of doubt

and the vague breath

of a life I could never know.

I find myself looking up at only sky

but then I remember to DREAM.  And

when I dream I feel my heart and

suddenly brilliant color and the depth

of flourishing beauty exists in my desires. 

And I find myself opening my heart and

expanding my lungs and singing and loving

and shining with rich, vibrant, magnificent

splendid life!

Thank goodness, my heart’s desire…it still breathes within me. LDS
