Midnight Train

Train whistle blows as it leaves the tunnel A zipping train that escapes the loud sound Above the tracks in the sky is the moon The midnight train moves swiftly to astound Through the mountain the train roars its engines With the moon supporting its light above Stars increase the nostalgia of the ride Riding in the train has intrigue thereof Twin lights beam out from the mighty engine Black as night the train cruises, it does thrive The whistle rings out again, bringing calm Peace enters my soul and keeps me alive
