I run at night and the lights chasing

Sneakers pounding as the heart does it's best

No one cheers or waits anxiously at the ribbon

My mother won't scream," run  Forrest run,"

It's me and the night with the wind

The sign was set and my feet were the GPS

Guide me home to my dreams

Dreams wait for me in in my junk drawer

A concert ticket for a faithful companion

Candy for my soul and  the lonely card

The card written for me and it waits too

The past dreams as well but I look to the new

Those lonely rascals run with me and make me strong

The wind pushes me and people who I don't know cheer

They are my future and they crown me with olive branches

A song will be written for my future

Children will sing my glory

And they will know I never quit

And this is the beginning

    The beginning of a marathon is one small step. This is very uplifting... I like how you express the thoughts in the back of your head as your running in the night... it's a time when the imaginary come to life and the troubles of the day seem far away. Very well written!

    Very charming Patrick. Those lonely rascals run with me and make me strong. Lovely thoughts come when running clears the mind of the details. love, Kathy
