I saw your face in the clouds one day;
wise, thoughtful and smiling!
I saw you face from far away crossed by a jet’s vapor trail
so what can one say?
An angel, a blessing, a curse or despair?
I know full well that no one will remember or care.
I saw your face in the clouds that vanished into the air,
without a word to say!
