I took a walk through my mind To see what was taking up space Memories both good and bad Were scattered all about I found scenes from my childhood Encountered some old friends Watched my daughter being born again Picked up a forgotten dream or two And when I had seen enough I wiped away the tears Because there really is no going back To try it one more time Besides I can’t relive the pain Of losing you again

Sandra was so excited, today was the day. Today was the day her vacation started. She was going to travel abroad for a full month. A part of her was terrified of the trip alone, but the excitement to see far away lands won out as the stronger emotion. She could hardly contain her excitement as she closed her suitcase and heard the cabbie honk his horn.
At the airport she began to worry about who she would be stuck next to on the overseas trip. “I hope it is not a noisy kid,” she thought to herself. Getting on the plane she was a bit apprehensive but when she got to her seat there was no one in the aisle seat yet.
She stored her carry-on overhead and took her window seat. Just then she sensed someone behind her. Turning in her seat she saw a very handsome man in front of her. “Maybe his will be a great flight after all,” she thought as she smiled at the man.
