Highway Romancer

I saw you one day, it took only seconds for you to pass me by,
On that long stretch of highway.
I couldn't, can't, help but smile, because you remind me
of a flirty, confident, romantic me.
Smiling, laughing, hardly containing myself.  
I didn't even mind, the smoke coming from your lungs
because underneath it all, a dragon is what I see.  
Magnificent gold and blue, of which there are so few.
And I wished, oh how I wished I could fly with you.
So when the storm lets loose, I'll follow because
for some reason, you make me feel safe,  
like I've found my place, so carry me gently
through the wind, rain, and thunder
until I find myself at home, in your arms...
 
You don't know my name, but I have one for you.
My Romancer.
Follow my heartbeat, and know that wherever I go,
I'll always remember  
how willing you were to play along, to accept me
for who I was, silly and maybe a little bit crazy.
But our evening was great, and I have your smile to thank,
your laugh to make, and your heart to take.
It may be that you'll never see me again.
But that long stretch of highway, is ours forever and always.
All of my days, romance me, highway lover
and hover in my dreams, spouting your fire and setting
my heart ablaze with your wonder.
 
I will always remember the girl you brought out of me,
on that sunny highway ride, romancing me by my side...
Oh...
Oh how that memory will last me forever and ever,
always a part of my past, always in my present,
And bringing out a future
In me.
So beautifully me.
