Traveling Down Life’s Highways
You came into my life
At some point along the trail
To walk with me,
To share it all,
The good times and the bad.
As I look down the road ahead,
I wonder if I'd still see you there,
Or if you've taken that sidestreet
Some time ago to be heading down
Some other remote road.
I guess my memory will tell
Of those who came along,
Of all who walked away,
Remembering only those few,
Yes, those still here today.
Why do I ever wonder?
Why should I even care
About those lost in time?
About those who've crossed my path
Just to soon be gone again?
What if tomorrow I can't remember
What your face looked like?
Or even that you once were here?
I guess then you didn't really matter.
Just... what if you're gone one day,
Yet my eyes still see you everywhere?
And everywhere I turn I hear your voice.
Is that a sign that's to say:
Yes, for you I still care?
Then where do I go to find you?
What if I never again will?
Will our time together
Then be lost forever?
Then I walk on, my head held high,
My eyes hodden behind dark shades,
For no one must know what's hidden inside.
I'll only let the world see my smile
As I walk on, day in, day out,
Wondering what life's truly all about.
