Tracks in the Dust

Written by: Caleb Smith

On the loneliest road, far away
A memory walks in the sun
Of a boy who travelled with none
In a place that he wished not to stay
Searching from dawn's light to grey
For traffic of life to outrun
On the loneliest road
Now grown, he walks in the fray
In the bustle of things to be done
In a street too crowded to run
He wishes he had just a day
On the loneliest road
