The Cabin Chapbook

The River and the Road 

There's a road, in the distance,
Where it leads, no one knows,
And it runs beside a river,
Clear and deep, the water flows.

Side by side, to the future,
Never drifting far apart,
Like two lovers, holding tightly,
Soul to soul, and heart to heart.

And every now and then,
A bridge crosses over,
Every now and then, they merge as one,
Every now and then,
A dream around them hovers,
On a journey both have just begun.

On the road, there's a traveler,
Walking slow, against the wind,
Never looking back behind him,
Holding tight to dreams within.

Floating there, upon the river,
There's a girl, who rides the waves,
Sharing all, she holds within her,
Holding tight to love she saves.

And every now and then,
A bridge crosses over,
Every now and then she overflows,
Every now and then,
The dreams that they uncover,
Hold secrets that only they can know.

There's a road, there's a river,
There's a boy, there's a girl,
Side by side, always together,
Hand in hand, in separate worlds.

Sharing all, they hold within them,
As their separate dreams unfold,
Different worlds that joined together,
On the river and the road.
