Something wonderful flew in the through the window
Just as the darkness painted the room -
A blue electric thunderbolt
Crackled its way as it danced across the floor
And lit every corner
The hairs on my neck stood up and cried
We are alive, it shouted, we are alive.
Something wonderful burst into the room
And blew the very oxygen through it all
Then lifted me as high as the farthest roof
Putting me down just as kindly
Something wonderful came in through the window today
- It was a second chance
And it wasn’t unwantedNor was it unwelcome.
