i’ve never liked long car rides;
the hours drag on
as the world flies by,
legs numb from sitting still
in the same spot, same position,
nothing to do but wait
to arrive at your destination.
but long drives with you
i could search the world
and never find someone better
suited to travel by my side.
with you, there’s always something
to occupy the time
and distract the mind
from the monotony of the road -
we sing along to the radio,
share comfortable silence,
talk about the universe,
our goals, dreams, hopes, plans.
i think i’ve gotten to know you
best while on the road,
our lives filling the space around us
with stories and experience.
i could drive around forever
getting to know you even better,
and never tire of the trip.
