I hear small voices
like leaves rustling in trees
streams that catch my breath
I stood there close
selfishly holding your hand,
you moved closer
to feel the warmth from my tear-softened face...
then you said you had to get your life together
and went to the phone.
I whispered, "just when I had it all figured out, everything changed." -
we broke out laughing, you pulled me in -
- a Moonless night - we sped down the highway, listening to a thousand voices singing in the engine, you turned off the light,
rolled the throttle back,
and we rocketed into a night of near misses...
