The Lonesome Road

It is a lonesome road
That each of us is travellin'
Although at times
It may not so appear.
But deep within your deepest self
You know it's true
It is a lonesome road
That each of us is on.

Oh, I can be beside you
Hear your laughter,
And I can help to dry
Your broken hearted tear -
But what you really are experiencing,
Is it mine as truly as it's yours?

No matter how we spend
Our time together,
No matter how we
Each other share -
You have your own
Experience of these moments,
As I have mine
Of these moments shared.

Your world is yours
And never any other's
To each it's own
Is how the law is writ' .
What's true to you
Is indeed your truth -
My truth to me
Is what I hold as true.

We honor love
Between the self and other,
It is treasured as a sacred
Priceless gift -
But what is love
To you I am now asking -
What are the words you have for it?

It is a lonesome road
That each is travellin'
Although at times
It may not so appear
But deep within your deepest self
You know it's true
It is a lonesome road
That each is on.

The joys we find
As on this road we travel
May sometimes seem
Not really worth the pain -
Yet when we come to know
Our highest nature,
There's little doubt
We'd come this way again.

Yea,
There's little doubt
We'd come this way again!
