if you can
my dreams
I know you feel the call
of your fireside
while I wait by my roadside
to travel once more
you could only take me so far
as home fills your days
& then to wait
my return again
it was not that I did not love you
I could not stay beside you
when the leaves grow green
a bright sun will warm
my bones
a thousand years
miles away
I will carry you with me
feel the weight on my back
as the sun goes down
on another day away
if I do not hurry
it is because I know
you are there
& tho’ I want to be with you
my life
will always be further
