We Could

We could …
But what about consequences?
 
I’ve thought about it
And savoured the thought
Dreamed about it
And woke up still smiling
 
So, we could …
But what about responsibilities?
 
The thrill of beginnings
Leads to the ache of endings
Happy-go-lucky now
Means sad-and-lonely later
 
Yes, we could …
But what about expectations?
 
I’ve danced with images
And felt the beat of anticipation
Sung the very scenery
And heard nature join the chorus
 
No doubt, we could …
But what about destinations?
 
The paths of travellers
Cross, tangle and part ways
The stars of destiny
Seldom blink and shine in sync
 
We could …
But would we? And should we?
