††††††††††††††††††† Waiting

Hurtling straight up into thunder and lightning,

If I were awake this would truly be frightening.

Iím strapped to my seat in a frail metal airplane,

Winging my way toward kisses and champagne,

Soft eastern light is pulling me onward...

Iím so far from home, somewhere over the ocean,

Iím soaring through space, but I canít sense the motion.

It feels like a dream, but my heart wonít stop racing,

Try to sit still, but I just canít stop pacing,

Seeing your eyes burning right through me...

††† And oh, drawing near now,

††† Nothing to fear,

††† Just take my hand,

††† Time now to land.

Wake with a start, and stare up at the ceiling;

Itís so hard to breathe, and my senses are reeling.

I re-close my eyes to recapture the vision,

See it again with perfect precision,

Soft eastern light is pulling me onward...

Iím so far from here, somewhere over the ocean,

Iím lost and at sea in a whirl of emotion.

I know itís a dream, but my pulse wonít stop racing,

Counting the days, and I never stop pacing,

Seeing your eyes burning right through me...

††† And oh, drawing near now,

††† Nothing to fear,

††† Just take my hand,

††† Time now to land

††† Safe in your arms....
