Sitting on a plane
Sadness washing over me
Writing my thoughts away in the darkness
Not even stopping to turn on the light
Not wanting to shed all of this in the brightness

Music in my ears
My thoughts coming out through my fingertips
Tears welling up in my eyes

The stranger next to me catches my attention
Let's me know it is ok to turn on the light
I am not sure I am ready for that, not sure I ever will be

We begin talking
I begin to not feel so alone up here in the sky
Two strangers coming together
Traveling alone, yet coming together.
