On the Road Again
the day dawned with light rain gently falling|
I loaded my motorcycle panniers, checked my wet weather gear,
backed my trusty motorcycle out of the garage for the last time.
No-one was there to see me leave, neighbours all gone to work.
My wife, she had gone to work and out of my life.
It was a time that I had never felt quite so alone.
One last check that I had everything then I posted
the keys to what had been my home through the letter-box.
Riding up the road out of the estate in the rain,
I fought back the tears that came from separation after 17 years.
My bike kept me safe, back on the road again
I remembered how much I enjoyed riding motorcycles.
On the most difficult day of my life she and other forces kept me safe
even managed to put a smile on my face as the rain slowly eased.
I had no idea what the future held on that day back in 1988
But I survived it and here I am now many years later,
I still love my motorcycling and I am content and happy.
On the road of life, many twists and turns and ups and downs
but....hey!! I'm still here..
