Orange Sky



I had the opportunity to drive up with my sister, Donna Kay, and we met Denise in Kennebunk, MA. I am reflecting on our quick trip; how nice people are out there in the real world; what we each expect from one another, but feel like we get the short end of the stick, and how my younger sister seems to be finally growing up. My parents had to leave this world to let her go from the nest. Mary, just fall and let your wings take over; it does not hurt as much as you think.

We all go through life feeling like we carry a weight that no one else does, but if we did not pick up rocks we would not know how they felt in our hands... I love you Denise, Donna, and Mary... your sister, Elizabeth

And... I had a dream
I stood beneath an orange sky
With my sister standing by
With my sister standing by
I said Sister, here is what I know now
Here is what I know now
Goes like this..
In your love, my salvation lies
...............................
In your love, in your love, in your love

But sister you know I’m so weary
And you know sister
My hearts been broken
Sometimes, sometimes
My mind is too strong to carry on
Too strong to carry on

When I am alone
When I’ve thrown off the weight of this crazy stone
When I've lost all care for the things I own
That's when I miss you, that's when I miss you, that's when I miss you
You who are my home
You who are my home
And here is what I know now
Here is what I know now
Goes like this..
In your love, my salvation lies
......................
In your love, in your love, in your love

Yes I had a dream
I stood beneath an orange sky
With my brother and my sister standing by
