For Sandy.

The Ride For Sandy 

You stand beside me, frightened. Pointing up at the multicolored lights.
I tell you... It will be fine, don't worry, We will come down. The 
night smells of sweetness, Fragrant with alluring aromas. A soft summer 
breeze runs fingers through your hair. The multicolored lights rain 
into your eyes. The line is moving forward now. Your hand slides 
timidly into mine. Our shoulders touch,so lightly,so electric. The 
barkers bark their endless pitch, Wooden bottles topple, children 
scream. The multicolored lights call our name. Under a lidless eye of 
moon, we climb aboard. You shiver--I hold you tight. And leave Earth, 
far behind.
