I am an old man whom has known a great deal of bad things, many of which have never happened.
-Mark Twain-


I am not the greatest when it comes to love.
At times I can be as bold and sleek as a Dodge Charger,
or I can be as quiet and awkward as a Toyota Prius.
My friends know that I am as dependable as a Chevy, and as trustworthy as a Ford.
Like your grandpa’s old pickup truck I have seen the rough side of the road.
Like that old truck, I just continue to drive over what ever obstacle is in my way.
With you it’s different.
It’s like you’ve parked your Ford Escort right into my heart.
I may not be as appealing as a new Ferrari, but with you I don’t have to prove how many horses I have under the hood.
My love will be as loyal as a soccer mom’s Mini-Van.
With you, it’s like my heart is the open highway that you fid yourself driving on.
With you by my side, I know we will just continue to rack up the miles as we drive into the future.

I was at a literary festival, and I was looking out at the parking which is what gave me the inspiration for this poem.
