I walked onto the airplane,
made my way through the aisle,
to the far end of economy,
noticing some frowns and some smiles.
And some fairly odd smells!
As I reached my coach-class stool,
I noticed this clumsy angel,
that adorable girl, seated next to me.
Fumbling with her phone,
that weird little torch that won’t switch off,
I helped her with it, and we struck a conversation,
and then the airplane took off.
Through two hours of travel we laughed,
we smiled, reminisced and sang,
she told me stories from her world,
while I watched her pretty brown eyes, twinkling in the florescence.
Time went by quickly,
we were home before we knew it,
I dropped her off and said good-bye,
and drove away.
Never to see,
that brown-eyed angel again…
