The traveller returning home



That first time I saw your gaze

I knew you and me weren’t afraid

Take on the world, and I you

I’m running it’s all so new

Newer than me, believing destiny

Heads oh too high, and mouths too dry.

There are no signs

And no one holds you when you cry

So take my coat and go

I know where I’ll find your shadow.

You told me that all of this would go

But I’m still thinking of when we kissed

Trust your heart, mine says you’ll be missed.


Did we exist?


I’ve travelled on alone

Decided on the short cut home

Passed my history up the gravel

To an old horse saddled,

Then paddled across the ocean to you

My love

perhaps you never knew.
