Take Me Back

Silver bridge that slides along the crystal blue ocean,

Take me back when I was a born to run man.

Squeezing the sun and quenching a thirst for adventure,

I never thought afterwards, I would go nowhere  and retire.

.

Country blues, spurs, snakes in sand,

Take me back when I could understand.

And buck up, giddyup on the wild horse with my friends,

I ended up home with my eyes dragging on ends.

.

Dusty, zest, clumpy plateaus and mounds of martian dirt,

Take me back when I couldn’t get hurt.

Boxing life in Arizona, winning round after round,

But then I slipped, lost focus, and fell flat on the ground.

.

The white ocean, the ivory beach,

Take me back when palm trees were within an arm’s reach.

And I felt at home for the first time ever.

Where am I now, in space forever.
