bump ... 
bump ...
a round of applause echoes throughout the cabin
as my plane touches down at the ANR Airport
you can immediately begin to feel the warmth
that the Caribbean sun in Tobago gives off
as the plane taxis towards the T on the tarmac
the flight attendants open the exit door
each row of 4 leave their seats in front of me
my heart begins to pound
we've been waiting months for this moment
I make my way down the steps of the plane 
I follow the others across the tarmac
he's out there somewhere waiting for me
even though I can't see him yet
I can feel his eyes burning into my flesh
goosebumps are brought to life
as I enter the air-conditioned terminal 
to collect my suitcase
everyone is gathered around hoping their bag arrives first
I try to muster more patience
as my heart begins to race
I see the suitcase trolley coming 
my red bag stands out like a sore thumb
I grab my luggage & make my way to the door
as the sliding doors part, I take a deep breath
I close my eyes & whisper a quick prayer 
Lord, help my heart to be still
point me in the direction where he is waiting
we've never officially met
nonetheless, online lovers we've become 
as my eyes open, I see people everywhere
I feel as though he's intentionally hiding from me
while he takes in the moment from a safe distance
giggling & watching me squirm 
as I scan the crowd in search of his tall chiseled frame
I know he's out there somewhere in the crowd
then from behind me suddenly 
I feel a big warm hand slip into the small of my back
while he whispers ... "welcome home Mrs. Roberts"
he turns me around & gently pulls me into his arms
as we embrace for the very first time 
our quivering lips that have been searching for each other
meet for the very first time
our eyes both close simultaneously 
we're lost in this moment & we don't care
who is stopping to stare
if they only knew how long we had waited
or what we both have been through
they would be stopping to congratulate us
cuz we finally managed to find each other and
discover what we've both known 
all along
