But there was something in the way we met.
It just happened, all seemed normal;
But looking back, I do wonder.
Was it meant to be? Was it a wise act of destiny?
We had discovered the highway, together,
Learning the ride, making mistakes,
And ultimately paying the price.
It wasn’t all fun, of course; it never is.
But a co-traveller makes it worthwhile.
Through twists and turns, ups and downs,
The journey has been rough.
Now we travel at the ends of the street
Not holding hands, out of reach.
Wasn’t it narrower when we started?
Time has passed, the roads have widened.
We’re not who we were, we’ve grown;
Dragging ourselves like tramps, up and down,
Shoving forward, though exhausted, beaten;
With only one purpose: the end, the end.
