That Old Dirt Road

Every once in a lifetime
You find some one special
They penetrate the spectrum's of the lines
That border your heart
You are left empty handed
God, wishing for another day
In which you can somehow explain
Who you are
What you mean
Without making a complete fool of yourself
I don't know about wishes
For I've never had faith on one being granted
I pondered to myself about closing the door
To save my heart and my integrity
But I was stoned by the sunlight at dawn
And the sun, I finally did see
Maybe it's a farce, a falsehood of sorts
Brought about by good hopes
I don't know
But I think I feel so good about who I am
And this is a surprise, so unplanned
There's a smile on my face and I'm responsible
For I have given faster and farther than my roads would have led me
If I had taken precaution
Though I am worn with physical exhaustion
The light that shines in the window is such a beautiful array
I just want to take a long walk on that old dirt road today

    You played the title line very nicely into this poem. I really like it.

    I used to take a lot of long walks about the time that I started writing and could not stop, sweet beautiful Lucinda ~ Time to be with, `OUR BEAUTIFUL FATHER IN HEAVEN,` the trees the birds the skies the waters people passing by and on and on, `HIS CREATIONS` ~ I miss those times but at the same I do realize that they are merely a prelude unto an indescribably much more Divine as beautiful moment to soon forever be * I love your painting tis very beautiful amid many lights ~ Love, John
