"En Route to Baltimore"

A coincidence that we sat next to each other.
I got nervous so you took my hand and held it through the turbulence.
We talked about school and friends. Music and family.
Shared what our dreams were and also our obstacles.
Laughed over jokes that nobody else knew but us.
Exchanged secrets and promised we'd keep them.
I blinked and the plane had landed. 
You were tucking away your head phones and laughing about something I
said.
I smiled at you and said "It was nice meeting you".
Although I never saw you again, we will always have our trip to Baltimore.
