Old Timer’s Farewell

Form: Free Verse

our last journey down the old bumpy road
bouncing and swaying on our last ride
the same old track from dawn ‘til night
at sunrise bumping out to the fields
at sunset swaying back again
it has been our rhythm for all these years
but now it is the final ride
you’ve seen me through the seasons
from winter’s snow and summer’s sun
but now there is not much more to be done
and there’s not much further to go
I will miss you, old truck
my friend through thick and thin
turning the key there is only one thing left to say
as I retire to my final years
good-bye and thank you my old friend
