Pretty Balloon

Pretty balloon up in the sky
float away as fast as you can.
The world is your field
of wonder and life
to seek the secrets that hide in plain sight.

You float higher and higher;
the world grows smaller and smaller
You see the star that gets closer and closer
Such an overwhelming joy.

And then you burst
and you fall away.
No one knows because they are unable to see.
The pieces touch the Earth's corners
to wither and eventually turned to dust.

But you were free
if only for a moment
to breathe and see and feel an everlasting light.
You may be gone from here
but you are still floating.

Pretty balloon up in the sky
float away as fast as you can.
The world is your field
of wonder and life
to seek the secrets that hide in plain sight.
