“Winding Way” by Robert Bartusch


The road declines to tell me
Where I’m going.

 

This road just winds
And takes me
Where I am.

 

I know that you don’t understand
Where I’m going.

 

You know I won’t tell you
Where I’ve been.

 

Would you believe me
If I told you I’m just walking up
Hills in a park,
Enjoying the sunshine this spring.

 

The road just winds and takes me
Where I am.

 

Road, we don’t have
To disagree.
I know you’ll always take care of me.
Road,
Just wind and
Take me where I am.
