End of Roads

If love is the way
then
what are you, oh, lovely visage
at the end of this road ?

Why must you taunt me with
beauty of what's to come,
leaving me lost and hungry, 
as I navigate the winding path ?

Why do you haunt me as your
glowing specter walks beside me,
whispering sweet tales of the life
we mean to lead ?

Oh, lovely goddess at the end
of this road,
will you watch the sunset with
me, when I've reached the
end of this road ?

Will you gaze all the setting suns
across the sky with me ?
And upon the Eve of Life's final days,
will you watch the final sunset as
Life itself begins its final trek
down the end of this road ?
