The Highway


If we leave early
we'll beat the traffic,
bumper to bumper,
mile after mile.
We'll be driving forever
on the highway,
all will follow 
in awhile.

We don't need
a destination,
even an idea
of where we're going.
We won't be returning
in the evening,
just to get up 
and do it again.
We'll be together 
on the highway,
rolling away
without a sound.

We won't worry 
about stopping to rest,
fueling up
or breaking down,
as long as we're riding
on the highway,
none can say
just where 
we're bound.
