THE RIDE

It's been a long day, and stress fills my head....
The sun is still up, it's too early for bed....
I step into the sunshine, run my fingers thru my hair...
Thinking, Why oh why, is life so unfair...
Out of the corner of my eye, my Shadow I see....
A smile creases my face, I know where I want to be....
I swing a leg over, and sit on my bike....
while watching some kids, happy on their trikes....
Easing off the clutch, I head down the road...
Leaving behind, my humble abode...
twist that throttle, shift that gear....
V-twin rumble is what i'll hear.....
rolling down the road, stopping for a bite....
looking at the country, marvelling at the site....
feeling the wind, blowing in my face....
slow down, get out of the rat race....
feet on the pegs, hands on the bars....
ride on, till I see the first star....
then with a sigh, i turn the bike around....
time to head home, but it's peace I've found....
gone are the cares and worries of the day....
if I had a choice, on this bike I'll stay.

Good night all. :-))

Just thought I'd send this poem, that I wrote for a friend of mine.
I was just messing around, but she liked it a lot.
Thought I'd just share this. :-)

Take care,
