Flicker of Light
Did you see that little flicker of light?
As it sailed pass me and into the night?
I looked to the Heavens in search of this sight,
I looked here, I looked there, I looked with all my might.
The little flicker of light is back,
It stretches across my floor, my door is open just a crack.
A stiff breeze slams the door shut tight,
In the blink of an eye, out went the light.
The little flicker of light is here once more,
Shinning thru the window and onto the floor
I asked myself, what could this be?
This little flicker of light that keeps eluding me?
I see the little flicker of light again thru the window pane,
As it moves from room to room and then back again,
Then as if I had just woke up, I suddenly realize,
It's a tiny flashlight and my home is being burglarized.
