Bobby and Me Love To Be Free

By Lesley Voth

On my Bike Bobby, great scenery to see.

Alone in my thoughts – Just nature, Bobby and me.

So much missed when reading a book

Not a glance, not so much as an interested look

While absorbed in Iphone or Ipad

You miss what Mother nature provided, that’s kinda sad

While riding I imagine the  grass under a tree

A cow or calf enjoying the shade happily

I imagine the family that lives on that farm

That house, the shed, tractor, living with no burglar alarm

Then I pass a truck on the road

The driver, driving, many hours, many miles, delivering his load

Does he dream about what could or will be

Does he love the freedom and open spaces like me.

Then I pass the car where passengers are asleep

I wish my horn was louder, I would LOL and give them a beep

Wake them up, is their travel so boring, because their will be no memories to keep

The wind in my face, the clouds above

I imagine the shapes – Angel wings I love

I am very lucky that I can make this dream  true

Because my life is getting shorter so I need make every sky blue

Oh dear took that corner a little fast

Felt good  though, leaning over, the road going past

I love each day I look down at the grass

Not at the roots-No regrets-no opportunity pass

Oops! swayed over the yellow line.

Concentrate I say – No cars coming, so thats fine

I cannot explain what this does for my soul

Just to breathe deep, and just let my life roll

Hey there are heaps of Angel wings today!

Giving me the answer in their special way

Damn another bug splattered on my arm

Why cant they go eat some corn over on that farm

Railway lines, goes to who knows ,forever

Going over those tracks too fast – ouch, not too clever

On the roadside, flowers, shiny tinsel , around a cross

I can imagine the tears and heartache for someone’s loss

Then bump! I ran over something already squished- putrid aghast

I had better get back to reality and find a fuel station fast
