The Plane Ride

I was five years old when I experienced
the plane ride I hope I never forget

The plane was so big, I was so small
excited yet nervous
I didn’t understand it all

The clouds were so pretty
they looked soft and heavenly,
I was hypnotized by the beauty and
drifted off into a deep asleep

I awoke when I felt the plane descending
I saw dark buildings, it was a big city
so different from the tropical island
we just left that was so pretty

I was too young to realize
how my life would change
by the plane ride I hope I never forget
