Night Flight


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.
