In that moment
In the free fall,
When the wind whips your hair,
And you close your eyes,
All the weight on your shoulders
Seems to disappear,
And suddenly your five years old again,
You hear your mom
Telling you to be careful,
You clutch onto the bar
Not realizing she just said the magic words,
Hold onto the important things,
Don't fall too fast,
And maybe, just maybe,
You won't get hurt.
Spinning and spinning
In that small circle,
Without a care in the world,
And when it slows down
Reality sets in,
You're not five anymore,
You do have cares,
And weight on your shoulders,
And responsibilities,
But in that moment
In the free fall,
It sure as hell was fun to be five again.
