Lengthy Roads While My Heart Makes Music For You

For ‘Bo;

In the distance, I can see the horizon

Far Away. Nearly unreachable

I falter. Steady, steady, go on

Your voice is what keeps me strong

I’ll keep on walking, on this long road

Until your voice guides me home

Home. It’s where my heart is

With you. Beating in time with yours

We’ll make beautiful music today

And one day , the world will hear our song

Until then, plug your earphones in

And listen to the melody that my cardiac sings

Varying tempos, different rhythms

But always, the same lyric

Three words. You know what they mean.
