Is one-night motels
Moldy old sinks and gas-station hell
Airplanes and bus rides that end in nowhere
Drains filled with mildew
And clumps of old hair.
Is new, foreign places
Buildings and statues with odd structured faces
Memories, family, and snapshots of time
Sharing hotel rooms, close as can be
Laughter and smiles, you’re feeling just fine.
Is two star-crossed lovers
Savoring weekends just once a full moon
Hello, then goodbye – repeat over again
Bliss for a day, kiss for a night
Two days of love then pack up, go away.
Travel size toothpaste
Means all this and more –
There’s only one question we’ve left to explore
Where will you go, what will you see?
With your travel-size toothpaste
…Just don’t forget me.
