#29 Lost Highway

There's a highway leads to nowhere,
I've been there many times.
For miles and miles it stretches
With nary a soul to find.

There's always been an exit
To get me back to town.

Time and time again
To the lost highway I am bound.
And I know the day will come
When no exit will be found.

The road of life has been kind
To me, and gentle by and far.

That lonely road to nowhere-
I'll trod 'til who knows when.
Put my picture in the obit there,
I won't be to work again.

Ahh, the road of life and its exits. How we all travel there at one time or another. This is a well told poem. Your picture compliments well. Have a nice day.

Oh, this is beautiful - the lost highway of life - hidden and found, found and hidden. Superb work! Love the rhyming, too! It adds extra power to this piece!

Rel,

This is wonderful. Very powerful. I think there was a lot of thought put into this piece. I hope that the highway doesn't end anytime soon for any of us. You're a wonderful and great person and may life continue to be easy and kind to you.

I often think of life as like a road - you've put it into words for me. Thanks.
