Better With You Than Away



Better With You Than Away

I am like an albatross
laboring to and fro
busy with the needs of the day
building bringing hoisting
then flying up and away
to rush in and down
-back.
I carry all that I can.
Soaring toward the sun, blind-is my thrill
wind all about.

I am like a night train
clickedy-clack
hug the track
I streak by quiet
My load it creaks upon the rail
as I drag on by
here
and then I am there, gone.

I am as the kite that soars
with string flying
away.
I am a happy song-
an invitation to dance along.

Let’s take our time
Let’s dance a jig
Let’s raise a glass
Let’s wear a wig
A boisterous cry
an outstretched arm,
our chorus raised:
“Come join our song!”

I am better with you than away.
