Waitin' for the Ride
by Ann Weyant
March 24, 2010

Another beautiful day and ...
Here I sit broken-hearted,
Just lookin' at my Harley,
Longing to get her started.

I love the freedom of the ride
Roaring down the road - wind in my face.
Eatin' bugs and dirt,
Out in the open space.

There's nothing like the ride
For settlin' my nerves.
Just me and my Harley,
Leanin' round the curves.

Yes, I've been there,
and I know how it feels.
Living for the ride and
Hopin' for no spills.

There'll be another tomorrow
And in the days to come.
I'm waitin' for the ride,
That's where I'm comin' from.

  1. Thanks, Vickie - it's always a pleasure sharing my poems or stories. But back to the present - John provided the words of the first stanza and the rest just came easy - maybe because I've been there done that, riding with Denny on his Harley. Thanks again for the post - your blog is really nice! :) Ann

  4. Yeah, Ann...it's good. It's been forever since I've "been there, done that" but one never forgets, huh? Sometimes, would like to go back and snatch one of those days back one more time. Luv,M

  6. I am deeply sorry for your loss... my thinking is: Your Dad -- Loved Harleys. Loved to ride. Went out of this world riding his Harley... who can say the road on the other side isn't one beautiful ride?
