A Lion on the Freeway

Why do I miss you so terribly
I can only guess
I can't help it, not my heart anyway
Jealousy, it is a constant
Over those who see you when
I'm alone, breathing the air left behind
By your peace and quiet calm
But is the war won, the battle of hearts
Underneath stars that know
The way lovers sigh, hoping it's all true
Their words, the feeling of their hand
It's a lion let loose on a freeway
A king but absent from his place
By your side, where love recognizes itself
A wonder of life, like you in my arms
