By Charles Robert Lindholm  


My heart has been searching for a long time

wandering along on the roads my head chose


an unwitting and unwilling companion

to the choices that were made

along the way, without a say

from my heart


and after all my heart’s been through

it finally knew, the time had come

to say, “Enough”


“I’ve longed for a life and a love

to match my gypsy soul

and I shall search

and I shall find it


I may not know

the path to take

I may take

The Road Not Taken


I need the Joy

of the gypsy life

and a Love to fill each day

and so I’ll have to take control

and Our Soul and I shall lead”


and at last my mind surrendered

for it had longings too

and with words so

softly spoken,

in a sweetly yearning voice


“I will let my heart lead me

and love a gypsy life”
