sometimes we forget what it is like to live in the mountains
to round a curve and see forever in the distance

sometimes we have been away and forget the fun
of curvy roads, to climb up and coast down

sometimes we pass by and take the view for granted,
maybe it is socked in with fog or clouds, maybe we are running late

sometimes we glance over and do a double-take,
wow, the Atlanta skyline 55 miles from here!

sometimes we just have to pull over and stand at the edge in awe
of all that empty space, acres of trees, and clean air

sometimes it is nice to live in the city
but not near as nice as seeing it in the distance
