Night Flight

(2011)

Looking out the window,

Out into the night.

Nothing can make you think more

Than hours of uninterrupted flight.

.

Above the clouds the sky is clear,

The moon shining bright,

Out on the wing you see the flicker

Of the planes white light.

.

Miles above the sleeping planet,

You sit and stare at the stars.

Miles out of reach from where you sit

Passing by like headlights on cars.

.

To the east the sky grows lighter

You see the dawn of another day

Twenty-four more hours

For you to waste away.
