Forgiven From Today

Driving home to Boston, cat sleeps upon my lap

Denver on the AM, wheels seem to know the way

Push a little harder, moon waxes clear and bright

The beauty and the emptiness meet the navy of the night

———————————————————————-

Feel the road heave and sigh

Singing, proud to be alive

Calls the driver on to drive

The beating of the heart

Pulsing out in time

——————————————————

Ladies of the mist, pirouette within the dark

Frozen frames of beauty caught amongst the pines

Ghosts upon the road minuet between the lines

Greeting every saddened smile and every friend of mine

———————————————————————

Feel the road heave and sigh

Singing, proud to be alive

Calls the driver on to drive

The beating of the heart

Pulsing out in time

———————————–

Engine burns and fills the air

Stricken dumb, the sound retreats and gives way

Do I wake or do I sleep?

Cast to spell by the army of the memory

———————————————————-

Riding now in silence, the east reveals the dawn

A golden band awakens southside of the sky

Willingly, I lift my foot and feel the speeding car glide on

Drawn into the growing light

While all the cavalry sings along

—————————————

And they tell me it’s ok

I am forgiven from today on

————————————
