The Lonely Road A road for the lonely,dark and dreary.A road through the wilderness,nothing around, just a car,a lonely driverand his thoughts.No one for him to talk to,nowhere to stop.Just mile after mileof loneliness.No destination.Just a lonely roadthat goes on and on.No beginning,no end. ~The Tennessee Poet~©Walt Page 2020 All Rights Reserved
