This airy song is probably not the best thing to publish at the heaviest moment of the year’s wheel, but still, here it is- a simple song about 5 sky blue friends.
They walk the road together;
they walk it side by side.
They hold each other’s hands;
they stretch out five men wide.
The sky stretched, too,
a flag of morning glory blue.
See the five of them
walk into the convenient store.
One of them buys the bread,
the other four wait by the door.
That’s what friends do-
they always hover near to you.
When they wander, when they roam,
they will hit the road together.
If one day they build a home,
they say they’ll live in it forever…
what a word…
so carefree and so blue, like a bird…
The five friends eat their meal
at a table that is round;
they never wince and cringe
to hear each other’s munching sounds.
Because these friends were dipped in sky,
their nerves never run dry.
The five friends walk the road
in matching jeans but different shirts.
They share a bag of snacks,
passing the bag both back and forth.
the five friends don’t believe in germs.
Five friends sit by the fire;
they listen to the music play.
One friend is asked to dance-
these friends are all too shy that way…
perhaps they could just sit and think?
The five friends seek advice
from a wise man at the church.
He says that friends are great,
but still you have to put God first.
And they agree-
but where is God?- He’s hard to see.
Is he a friend inside your mind?
Or could God be the sky?
The five friends vote on it-
the vote is five to none
that God must be the sky;
He shelters everyone,
so clear and sweet,
surrounding us with time and dreams,
surrounding us with space to explore;
that’s what friends are for.
