Where the road takes me!

 

I go where the road takes me.

Moonlight shining through the trees,
dots of houses in miles of fields.
Over bridges and rivers I drive,
with smiling lips, mile after mile.

Often-times 'tis heard "road to success".
Often-times all one needs is just a road,
with no destination or direction,
through tiny towns with scattered lights.

I go where the road takes me.

A joyous thrill fills the body,
Sheer pleasure of driving unchecked,
Exhilarating the mind and soul,
As man and machine form one beast.

With thumping heart and pumping revs,
Of one mind and no purpose.
Humming tunes with a jig to match,
Waving merrily as we pass cars by.

I go where the road takes me.

Rain clouds in the distance,
Crowning a towering mountain,
Drops of water pepper the screen,
But the road ahead stretches, invitng, reassuring.

Through tunnels and hairpins we ride,
slanting left and then to the right.
Climbing steadily to the mountain top,
the summit is scaled and the car turned off.

With wonderous eyes and peaceful heart,
we look upon the world at our feet,
as through the gloom and thinning rain,
a nascent sun breaks through to shine.

I go where the road takes me!
