airplane love song

witness me a rising moon
and pale grey stars
and promises freshly scattered
on the autumn breeze

paint in me a blood-red sky
blue sunset kisses
and gentle minstrel ballads
whispered in my ear

write to me with silver starlight
pressed rose petals
and sweet blown kisses
scented like rain

color me in shades of lonely
soft violet teardrops
and memories of your voice
calling out my name.
