Ahead of the Journey

I try to run ahead
And when  you take your time
I act as though I’m running away
Not realizing that I’m missing the journey
As I leave you behind

I had revelations
Forgetting that that book is at the end
Not that I must wait for it all to be over
But that I have galloped over the stepping stones
That you have laid out before me
In the river
That I might stay dry
Yet now my feet are soaking wet

You don’t have to move me
Though it might be time that I learn
To move with you
Looking around me
Falling into step with you
As we walk this life
