Flying Together

I’ve taken many trips

solo and group adventures

Trekked across foreign lands

found secrets in my backyard


I’ve seen oceans vast 

explored scorched deserts

Hoofed cities of all sizes

climbed treeless peaks


I’ve always enjoyed myself

with or without company

Never dissuaded from going

if only for being alone


Yet here I am in uncharted territory 

as we fly together to your childhood home


I feel unusually nervous 

for the simplest of our plans

The butterflies in my stomach

wakened from their long rest


I feel restless and silly

overthinking mindless tasks

Lucky to have your hand

guiding me through this


I take comfort in your smile

the way your eyes say they know

Your gentleness so assuring 

amidst my fears so vulnerable


So here we go into alien experience 

flying together bravely into the unknown –
