Forever Down a Dirt Road

A Love and Loss Poem

Forever Down a Dirt Road

Forever down a dirt road

Forever in my mind

Hands free and waving

Feet bare and hair flying

Reaching out to touch her hand

Coyly smiling and pulling it away

Childhood was less ugly with him there

I wish he had been able to stay.

Blonde and blue breezing down the road

Fishing poles and rolled up jeans

Tank tops and tackle boxes

Simple plans and simple dreams.

Forever down a dirt road

Forever in my heart

Childhood sweetness untainted by time

Because forever down a dirt road

Is only forever in my mind.

I see myself running

Gravel like sand under me

The little white house on the corner

My future to be.

It starts to move away

Like some dramatic fadeout

My small hands reach so hard

It disappears as I begin to shout.

Then the sun hits my face

From my nearby windowpane

And I realize it was all a dream

And I'll never see him again.

Forever down a dirt road

Forever in my soul

Childhood sweetness untainted by time

Because forever down a dirt road

Isn't forever anymore.
