Stranger on the Plane.

Busy people with busy lives

Rushing through the airport

Because there’s not enough time

My eyes gently close while waiting

Long day- Needing to take flight

And out of all this re-arranging

He says to me “Is this seat taken?”

 

Just another soul on the go

A new person to smile at

Another person leaving hoome

We will never meet again

And its insane

But my day was made by a stranger on the plane

 

Late night boarding makes for good storytelling

He’s leaving an oil rig- Just in time

Wants to see his family for Christmas

His parents live close to mine

Colliding at 35,000 feet

I can’t help but wonder what he is hiding

 

Just another soul on the go

A new person to smile at

Another person leaving hoome

We will never meet again

And its insane

But my day was made by a stranger on the plane

 

It’s over and he lets me out first

Crowded baggage claim and leaving lanes

We smile and glance away

Funny how none of our conversations

Brought either of our names
