Cross Country

byLesseloovesPeter©

Waved good bye to mom and dad
took little more than a sack
everything from his bank account
he wasn't coming back

he boarded at the station
stowed his gear overhead
looked out the train car window
contemplating what's ahead

hours and hours of riding
still cannot compare
with the fear and excitement
of what he'd find out there

would he find a kindred spirit
of love long lost and lusted
would he see a happy face
the one he knew and trusted

or would he find an empty station
no sign that bore his name
would he turn right back around
and life go on the same

through the Rockies and the prairie
he watched the country pass
sun rising and sun setting
time both slow and fast

as they neared his stop
he could feel his nerves glowing
pulled into the station
they were almost overflowing

finally at his destiny
he shuffles off and stands
with his guitar strapped on his shoulder
and his heart held in his hands

then a so familiar voice
rings into his ear
"why hello there, stranger,
so glad to see you here"
