The Sky Above

The sky above
Is filled with stars
And space and things unknown - 
With other worlds
And other lives
And things we've never known.

Different people
With different homes
And different lives to lead - 
Other chances
Abilities too
With the same living need.

Songs we'd exchange
And stories too
If future meant we met - 
The histories
And tragedies
The ways our lives are set.

What would they say?
What could we tell?
What would we come to know -  
How life combines
All living things
To live and learn and grow.

(Junior High writings)
