My childhood dream was to one day fly with the birds among the clouds. Well here it is 50 years later and I have to say dreams do come true as our children gave us a Hot Air Ballloon Ride for our anniversary gift. It is one of the most wonderful things I have ever experienced. I thought I would share it with you.

A Walk in The Clouds
Written by: Rose Marie Rideout
The flight left at seven pm.
The winds were whispering soft and slow,
I thought back to my childhood dream,
Of wishing one day I could go.

Dance on the clouds above,
Take a walk up in the sky,
Feel as free as the birds flying with us,
Up in the clouds so high.

I held back the tears that I felt,
For the others just couldn`t see,
The excitement deep within my heart,
For my dream now had become a reality.

I ask for happiness and health,
For everyone each day,
I make wishes for peace amongst man,
In each and every way.

Such few dreams as a child,
I pray to have come true ,
One was walking in the clouds,
As I snuggled close to you.

We celebrated when we reached the ground,
With the crew, a prayer to God & Champagne,
Thanking Him for returning us safely to Mother earth,,
So we may one day return again.

A Fabulous story!... and one that you must've told your kids many times and see, now they've helped bring it true. I once made a "model" small hot-air balloon and launched it with my dad, but it caught on fire (we were on the ground of course!) Someday I may try your dream too.
PS: and thank you so much for passing along that "music" information and your constant reviews
Happy Aniversary to your & yours, michael guy

My dreams are not fantasies
Dreams have a goal
Fantasies are easily shattered
We have no control

So glad one more dream has come true.
Regardless of what we have on our bucket list, it is wonderful to cross each one off.
Big smiles--RaeLynn

Hi Rose,I love this poem and I want to wish you and your husband a Happy Anniversary.Your children are the best.To be honest with you,I recently went on a balloon ride last week.It was the most amazing thing that I've ever done.It wasn't a hot air balloon ride,but the balloon was made out of helium so that the ride can be quiet.I went 300 feet in the air and I got to tell you that before I went in the balloon,I was a little bit nervous but once I was floating in the air,I felt good.I saw the whole scenery of Central Park including the grass and I saw the city skyline.It was absolutely amazing and I am glad that you went up on a hot air balloon ride to see the whole world right in front of your eyes as well as your husband.It is indeed special to share this moment with your husband.A kodak moment so to speak :-).Thank you for sharing this experience.I always admire and appreciate your feelings that you express in your poetry that makes your poems very enjoyable to read.God bless you and your husband.take good care of yourself

Wow, what a gift from your children!! Congratulations! I don't think I could go hot air ballooning; for one thing, I'm absolutely terrified of fire/flame close to me. When I was a little girl, a neighbor kid tried to set my hair on fire before my twin and my brother beat the crap outta' the kid. Ever since, I fear fire/flame. No, I'll leave that to brave people like you!! LOL Very well penned excitement of your trip in the clouds! BRAVA, Rose; enjoyed!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Oh, Rose, how cool is that? That's something I did, once: got about 20 feet in the air, said, "Put it back." Pilot: "What?" Me: "Put. It. Back." LOL Didn't feel so secure in a wicker basket all of a sudden ... and all I could envision was those pics you see on the news of balloons ... nevermind. Glad that wasn't Y O U. LOL Congrats, can't wait to see the piccys! Well done. You're way braver than the 'Spinner.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
