From my window

 

From my window an aeroplane flies past,

Or maybe I am mistaken and itís a bird way off in the distance.

 

From my window the moon shines in the east tonight,

but no, I think itís a street light.

 

From my window a star shines bright, and I think to myself;

"just how big and far away that star is?"

 

But then I realise itís not a star at all,

but a dew drop glistening of my window.

 

From my window things are not always what they seem.
