On a midnight trip
Like the one described by Gladys.
It would be insane
Been a midnight train.
Never been on a flight this long
So I don’t know what’s in store.
A pit stop in Paris
Is a recourse not so bad.
After a ten hour flight
A traveler could be mad.
A rendezvous with a city divine
Is enough to still the nerves
On this trip of a lifetime.
I’m headed to another land.
This will be my first visit
To the place my people call motherland.
A place called home
That I’ve never been before,
Where the lions and leopards roam
Freely and forevermore.
No doubt it’ll be an adventure,
One that I’m sure to remember.
First thing’s first though.
Passage through the gateway
Of a city rich with history and prestige,
A place I can’t wait to take siege.
What will I do with a six hour layover?
Answer’ll be evident by the time
The day is over.
But for now,
Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.
God watches over the sparrows,
And I believe He has this big bird in His sight.
