I got in my car after work today and drove and drove and drove...all the while, thinking about you.
I drove through the mountains and the sky and felt the wind blow through me and I thought about you. I know you so much better than I did before, but I don't really know you at all.
I thought about what you would say if you could see what I saw, and if you could see everything that comes out of me. Would you stay?
I listened to the lines of a song I've heard a thousand times before, and I heard something new in it. I let it wash over me, and the words started running through my head, faster. I thought about your eyes, and your breath.
I thought of you when I drove past the meadows and the farms in the valley. I thought of you when I saw the clouds as they gathered on the horizon near the lake.
I thought about when I would see you again.
I drove as long as I could, because I knew that once I stopped, the magic would be gone, the moment over. I wanted the moment to go on as long as it could, because just for a little while there, everything was suspended in space, and it was perfect.
So, today, I drove my car and I thought of you. And I know that if I let go, everything will be okay.
