The road that leads me home to you

The road that leads me home to you The burdens that I bear, are too shameful to share The journey that I'm on, doesn't take me anywhere It is said that love is blind, And, I know... I've been unkind but, you've always had the power to see through me Chorus The pain is never ending for the two of us... And I know very well, that I've broken your trust... I'm traveling on a pathway, that's beaten me black and blue but, I just can't seem to find, the road that leads me home to you I know that when a precious thing receives a fatal blow... You can try to piece the pieces, but, the damage will still show Our love is like a broken vase, so precious and unique Let's bond ourselves back together, and let loving actions speak Chorus The pain is never ending for the two of us... And I know very well, that I've broken your trust... I'm traveling on a pathway, that's beaten me black and blue but, I just can't seem to find, the road that leads me home to you I've tried to find some peace, shutting off the craziness of night I've been searching for the shining star to lead me home 'fore morning light Just knowing that you'll be there, waiting patiently for me Gives me the courage to come home, and set me free from misery Chorus The pain is never ending for the two of us... And I know very well, that I've broken your trust... I'm traveling on a pathway, that's beaten me black and blue but, I just can't seem to find, the road that leads me home to you the road that leads me home to you the road that leads me home to you the road that leads me home to you the road that leads me home to you repeat and fade John Derek Hamilton July 04,2020

Nice write John! You were right this is something I would write as well. Do you go for a particular genre? We’ll have to collaborate on one sometime.

Beautiful lyrics, John. I would love to hear with music. I was singing it to the tune of, God Bless the Broken Road, as I read it a second time. You have a great talent for song writing. Blessings, Rhonda xx

The heartache is so evident. Your lyrics are passionately tender, John. I apologize for not responding to your comment on one of my poems a couple of days ago, but I just saw it.
