Horizon



Heat shimmers the horizon
I glance the fuel slowly reaches low
Sands burning stretch beyond distance
Sun and heat scream rage against my brow

Shall I to my true love so fair
Or seek my fate in parts unknown nor seen?
We used to fit like
hand in glove we were
How far apart we've grown
How could this be?

I sense her eyes they search for me all day
Will I return or continue north?
Desperately she longs for me and prays
I slow my car and contemplate this worth

I'll turn this car around and make for home
She waits for me with broken heart forlorn
