Take Me Away On A Country Drive

I Never Want To Stop

We hop in the car and out of the driveway we go

Down the road and where we stop nobody knows

We look at the trees all green and tall

Then all the different houses that have huge barns and rock walls

I feel only a cool breeze that blows

Not a care or a concern

All we have is gas to burn

We take a left then a right

My head nods off as my wife drives for over an hour

I am so peaceful and relaxed

Then she instantly yells did you see that

Ofcourse not

I dozed off to sleep

What was it ?

Never mind

She says if you are hungry we will stop

We found a nice seafood place to stretch our legs and fill our hollow drums

Each bite so delicious and wonderful

You would think the food melted in thin air

We stopped along the way at many antique shops browsing

The treasures tucked away in every room that only our eyes can see

Reminscing of days gone bye and the years that have passed

Leaving there with a deep feeling of satisfaction and the love for new technology

As we finally turn around and head home

A day filled with looking ,resting and talking

When we pull into the driveway we see our cat up in the window

Anxiously waiting for our return

As you hear the car locks click and our car doors shut for the final time

A wind chime twisting back and forth

We disappear behind the glass where we retire for the evening

Having fun buying nothing and sharing the most valuable thing in life


That's how we end the evening as the clock ticks quarter past nine
