I Don’t Know Why

In my rear-view mirror
Landscapes slip away
In a constant hurry
They just slip away

Destination looks closer
But I won’t slow down
I’m enjoying this ride
I will not slow down

Another thunderstorm
Then a bright sunny day
A tear and a smile
Just another sunny day

Long days crawling
In a blink of the eye
I’m enjoying this ride
And I don’t know why.

    Moving ahead is always the better option. I’m glad you are enjoying the journey as well.

    There is a strong lyrical feel to this poem – I’d love to hear it put to a melody. I like the feeling of movement that accompanies your sentiment here.

    Beautiful to imagine you on that journey. Not knowing why means you are just living it, embracing it, enjoying it. Bravo πŸ™‚

    Perhaps it shows that the healing has begun in earnest. Sometimes I think when we lose and grieve a love it’s a lot like losing a person to death. You cry, you’re inconsolable, you’re haunted by their presence every where you look… Then one day you accidentally really smile at something, and you feel maybe a little guilty, And pretty soon you find you’ve forgotten about the trauma for a while altogether and you laugh right out loud… It sounds like you’re well on your way to healing, my friend? {{{HC}}}

      I agree and yes, digging this huge dune of sand with my coffee spoon is starting to pay. I can finally see the sea on the other side. Literally, these days! πŸ˜‰ Hugs my sweet Calen

    So sad: in trying to get to your blog I clicked unfollow. On the upside: upon further inspection I found it worth subscribing a second time ; )
