Biker PoemI saw you hug your purse closer in the grocery store, but you didn't see me put $10.00 extra in the collection plate last sunday. I saw you pull you child closer to you when we passed on the sidwalk, but you didn't see me play Santa at the mall. I saw you change your mind about going into the restaruant, but you didn't see me attend the meeting to raise more money for hurricane relief. I saw you roll up your window and shake your head, but you didnt see me behind you when you threw your cigarette butt out the window. I saw you frown as I smiled at your children, but you didn't see me take time off of work to run toys to the homeless. I saw you stare at my long hair, but you didn't see me and my friends cut off ten inches for Locks of Love. I saw you roll your eyes at our leather coats and gloves, but you didn't see and my brothers donate our old coats and gloves to those who had none. I saw your fright of my tattoos, but you didn't see me cry when my children were born and I had their names written over and in my heart. I saw you change lanes and hurry somewhere, but you didn't see me going home to be with my family. I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be, but you didn't see me while changing your cd and drifted into my lane. I saw you yelling at your kids in the car, but you didn't see me pat my childs hand knowing he was safe behind me. I saw you reading a newspaper or a map, but you didn't see my wife squeeze my leg to let me know to take the next turn. I saw you race down the street in the rain, but you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car for a date. I saw you run a yellow light to save a few minutes, but you didn't see me trying to turn right. You cut me off because I was in the lane you needed to be in, but you didn't see me leave the road. I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass, but you didn't see me, I wasnt there. I saw you go home to your family. I didnt, you didn't see me, cause I died the day you cut me off. I was just a biker, a person with friends and family. but you didn't see me.
