Poem: A Lonely Drive with Memories

As I drive these winding mountain roads

With an empty passenger seat
My mind goes to all my travels before
In every memory there’s always a girl
Riding shotgun next to me laughing
Singing at the top of our lungs to a song
Windows down and hand on her thigh
Knowing there’s a destination ahead
But pretending we won’t ever get there
Because of the fun we’re having
Passing in the moments in between
I think of each of them my passengers
Sharing in once in a lifetime adventures
To places we’d never pass again together
My windows still down singing a song
That makes me think of you and wishing
For some old company on these new drives
