Tandem



You
taking the lead
guiding through obstacles
foreseeing troubles
making quick judgement calls
zig zagging
weaving in and out of traffic
warning about bumps up ahead
taking care of the heavy machinery
making sure we're safe
allowing me to fly

Me
following right behind you
giving you the lead
going where you're going
enjoying the ride and the cool air
admiring our images
viewing the beautiful coast and scenery
coasting along with you
anticipating the fast downhill
smiling at the wind in my face
putting both arms out for the first time
and flying

Us
riding together
working together
reaching our destination
burning legs up hills
then coasting and relaxing
enduring the bumps
racing our shadows
finding a rhythm
gliding in unison
beating hearts in unison
tandeming on bikes
mirroring our lives
