STRANGE HIGHWAYS

Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)



He rides strange highways
into the night,
Dark highways no-one else
can ever see.
Highways where second chances
may be granted,
Where those who died young
may live again,
And those who did evil
will finally pay.
Old scores must be settled
by enemies,
On this highway of life
the highway of death.

He walks along strange highways
late at night,
Dark lands that no-one else
can ever travel.
Highways where lost opportunities
may finally be realised.
Where those who were never born
can finally be real.
Long broken friends may
at last be renewed.
On this high of new hope
on the highway of life.

THE END
