It Was a Day for Airplanes

For Van

It was a day for airplanes when the sky was so blue it seemed dishonest
Two old friends counting the seconds from a life they carved with love
Around them – and the airplanes – the diversion known as life raged on
The two little lights illuminated the setting sun sky and offered secure landing

It was a day for airplanes when the black dogs kicked up lazy tufts of grass
Two old friends recalled the paths they chose that lead them to this runway
In the distance lightning and thunder danced their tempestuous tango
The two little lights illuminated the darkest corners of the perilous flight pattern

It was a day for airplanes when the symphony of the laughter filled the air
Two old friends touching two young hearts like they promised they would
In the house – love was surrendered by love and spread out on the table for everyone
The two little lights illuminated the horizon as the airplanes touched safely down
