I Mark The Road Before You

I mark the road before you,
As I do every day.
I'm sure you've never noticed
My signs along the way.

But still, I'll leave them scattered,
In hopes that you might see;
Someone has an interest,
In whom you seem to be.

The signs are just reflections,
Though altered from the start;
By timid conversations,
And then a broken heart.

They make no point of order
Against your chosen life.
Nor seek to pull you over
To be a captured wife.

They only seek to guide you
To places you've not been.
To places not considered;
Rejected, way back then.

So as I go before you,
I still must look around.
To see if you have followed
The others that I've found.

I guess that all considered,
I'll have to mark them too;
So you won't see these others,
The ones you shouldn't do.

Though only my reflections,
Mine can't lead you astray.
I'll mark the road before you,
Until my dying day.
