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 

are different.

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.
