The Old Road

I took the old road tonight

Where the moon is not so threatening

I drove around the time-worn curves

And watched the tiny houses

Drift past outside my window

I listened to the night wind

As it blew all around me

Sharing memories of better times

Easier times from the not-so-distant past

And I smiled

I drove around that last sharp edge

Where the moon became threatening again

But it was softer, somehow

I took the old road tonight

And found you waiting there
