Miles From Home

Miles From Home

written by: Ivor Steven



I went left, instead of right
No matter what direction
Or decision I choose
At the end of day
There will be night
My time to rest
And remain out of sight

I shall take the back roads
Miles away from my troubled life
Miles and miles
Beyond those evil eyes of strife

I will sleep under the stars
With my loyal companion
By my side

He gives me that inquisitive stare
“Don’t look at me like that
I know mate, I know
I should never have left the wife”
