Faithful Friend

After thirteen years
I bid farewell
To a faithful friend;
My constant companion
When I was all alone!
We took trips together
And visited places
Near and far away.
And when I had to fly
She took me to the airport;
And there she was
Waiting patiently
Whenever I get back!
She dropped me off
To work every morning
And on the way
We listened to rock and roll;
She never said anything
Even when I sing
Horrendously out of tune.
She took me home every evening
Listening to Delilah along the way.
But she’s been ill lately
And maybe there’s not much
I can do for her...
Still it breaks my heart to let go...
I will miss the way
Her engine purrs
Her smooth acceleration
When I stepped on the gas!
Thirteen years, my faithful friend
My constant companion
Through thick and thin!

This was a poem I wrote over two years ago when I sold my car, a reliable friend of thirteen years. The photo shows a Nissan 300ZX. My car was a very distant cousin LOL.
