Old Car, New Car
Author: Cheryl


As I sit here remembering my old car
And how it had taken me so far
Small it was, enough for me
Made me feel happy and free

Always there when I needed it
Together we were, like gloves that fit
But soon it started to let me down
And I would always wear a frown

Why was it becoming unreliable?
Oh, I know these things aren't infallible!
Its reluctance was beginning to show
I knew I'd have to let it go

A new car, I soon found
Surprisingly, without looking around
Reliable and trustworthy
I knew this was the one for me
Quick to respond and always there
We could go just about anywhere

And all the while as I delight
I can't forget my old car, try as I might!
Fond memories I have of this friend
I do miss it, I cannot pretend

I can't forget my.....

I like this poem, Cheryl, and I can relate to it!! Funny how we can become so comfortable with an old wreck, isn't it?? Ha! Ha! And, yet, they all turn into junk after a while! Nice poem about your car! Thanks!

Thanks Ben!

I appreciate your commenting on my poem, Ben. Would it surprise you if I told you the poem isn't about a car although I've used the idea of a car? Are you posting poetry on this page? If so, I'll take a look. Take care, Cheryl
