Full speed ahead
On bouncing, shaking wheels
And I think of you.
Your face is everywhere,
This is where you were.
We climb and climb
Everything is small now
But the world is huge.
And then everything is
Obscured by clouds
I can’t see anything
Except the blinding nothing
Is this where you were?
We burst through,
Into the glorious sky
Tinged with roses and lavender
And blue, twinkling blue
Like your eyes,
And is this where you are?
