GRAY BLUE SKY - by Josette Key


by  Josette Key

On a lonely hill
Stands a lonely house
Under a gray blue sky.

An empty shell of what used to be
A reminder of days gone by.

It's walls once housed a family with love
It's roof kept them safe and dry
It's windows shown with the bright morning sun
As they watched the world go by.

If ever you pass this lonely house
Stop a minute and think
Of all the lives and all the love
That's passed through this lonely place
And remember with awe how life must have been
Under a gray blue sky.
