At Night

Lying on my bed looking at the sky
Seeing all creatures awake
The moon, the stars, and the Planets so way up high.
Staring up at the sky all night.

Seeing all creatures awake
Not wanting to go to bed
Staring up at the sky all night
I see the moon’s face.

Not wanting to go to bed
The moon, the stars, and the planets up high
I see the moon’s face
Lying on my bed looking at the sky.
