Beauty In The Sky


The bombs burst in the air,

Oh how that flag still waves,

Not at me, not yet,

But soon,

They threw colors in the sky at night,

For all of Philadelphia,

But the sky I beheld was not the same,

For they painted me pictures,

A thousand words weren't enough,

But I saw freedom, I saw beauty,

I saw the miracle of bright dawn at nearly midnight,

And I saw you.
