Have you ever watched your shadow-rider as you ride along the road?
Stretching and shrinking
Constantly changing shape and form.
He rides along beside you
As you roll along down endless byways.
Wheel to wheel.
Have you ever talked to your shadow-rider as you’re zipping down the road?
We’ve talked about adventures taken together
And of new ones yet to come.
Of the people we’ve met
And those we have yet to meet.
Mind to Mind.
Have you ever tried to fool your shadow-rider as you cruise along the road?
Stopping in the shadows
Then rushing out into the open;
To see if you can catch him off-guard
And leave him behind.
Mile by Mile.
Have you ever wondered where he goes when the light fades on the evening road?
Does he just ride off
Into some shadow-world?
Free for the moment to go wherever
He pleases, till the light returns?
Moment by Moment.
Have you ever wanted to BE your shadow-rider and trade places on the road?
To feel the ever changing contour
And textures of the land.
To go rushing along the ground
Feeling the cool earth and warm pavement.
Rider to Rider.
Have you ever seen your shadow-rider watching You as he zips along beside?
I’ve caught him turning his head
And looking back at me.
As we travel the endless miles
Sharing each adventure, side by side.
Wheel to Wheel.
