Tie the knot of a love detour
around the turn the heart shall befriend
finding truth and simplicity galore
slowly waiting to reach the end

crawling along a tortured road
allowing only thoughts to flow
erupt in fervid flame to goad
changing the light, now able to go

the stop sign stands around the corner
bending beneath a tall wide bush
tricking those who did falter
sending their minds unwired in rush

can the road forgive them
sing a sweet drone lullaby
softly chanting just to lend
a second chance, to let us fly

forget me not the wind will murmur
praying that the wish is true
glancing up with a new whisper
commenced its life, and up it flew
