Poetry By Chuck




Missing image
My Best Friend has died
and I've cried
and the tears have spilled
on his grave

I must be brave

His shadow will never
find its home
because his spirit
on a motorcycle roams

And when I need
his smile
he will ride
many a mile

To my side

His soul will
listen to my voice
and his heart
will guide my choice

of love and life

And when I hear
that sound
like a bike
that roars through town

I'll smile

      Thank You


      Your award is and will always be special to me and to him. He may not be able to say it, but I'm sure you understand. Thanks again.   Dave Headley (whom I've known since the 4th grade was a avid Harley Rider.   As he fought cancer, he rode.   His last trip was to meet me after 10 years.  He rode with the dripping chemo flowing into his arm for 100 miles a day,  four days of riding in the Central Desert heat.

      I lost my best friend, a harley rider, in December of 07. His presence is sorely missed and when I think of his loss I hold back the tears that my heart cries. Thank you for your comments. I have other motorcycle poems if your interested.
