Vapor Trail Dreams, From Paper Airplanes--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States

Vapor Trail Dreams, From Paper Airplanes

Walking on clouds in the heavenly blue
In a job that I loved, with a sky view,

Let me travel with a smile on my face.
I've sojourned afar in aloha's grace.

Every city, every place had a song...
A melody played as I sang along.

As many years passed and I longed for home
I gave up my wings; no longer would roam.

Island of pineapples and sugarcanes,
Vapor trail dreams, from paper airplanes,

Memories now, I recall from above
Have left me contented with my sweet love.
