The Road


Another sole hits the ground

Hugging highways and shorelines

Field and shield and the road


And miles to go before I sleep

Early rain or early frost

Promise of miles on the road


Rollin’ down highway 17

Pose for me under a statue

No one knows my struggles on the road


Begin again in a heartbeat

Aching every step I can bear

Like Sisyphus of the highway

An aching in my heart to repair


Have you seen my child’s eyes

Have you ever seen the sunrise

Miles are mine on the road
