stories the ears to please

if I lost you

somewhere along the way

travelling fast & light

spare change gets caught in the seat covers

don’t mean I don’t miss it

at the next stop light

but you had a part to play didn’t you?

could have caught me up anytime

putting your foot down hard

sending me a post card you might

& if I lost you

somewhere in those middle years

maybe I thought you were busy

doing what you were doing

off into your own dark night

living your living easing your fears

while I wandered away to mine

ours are not the only lost souls

sending whispers on the breeze

our roads easy took a diversion

& if they meet on that lost horizon

there will be stories the ears to please
