Andrew Lee


Hitch Hiker


On the road, on the go.
One man. But not alone.
A solitary existence,
All I've ever known.
So confined, yet so free.

But one fateful day,
Along that forgotten road
Passed a girl, and with the kindest of hearts
Let me aboard the wheels of her life.

For a while we cruised, she wanted to help me
But when she asked where I was headed,
I could not say, for I did not know.
Hurt, she tried to ask me to get out of the car
But I begged her to keep me, and somehow she did.

Now I realise, maybe I should have left her be:
I may have just prolonged a painful goodbye.
Instead, I selfishly wasted your precious time.
After all, it isn't my car,
So who am I to let myself stay?

Tina, I know you probably wont see this, but if you do I just want you to know that if it's how it must be, then I'll fade away. No matter what happens, I'll not forget you. Thank you, for opening my eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
