Your Ol’ Black Truck

Barbara Streisand sang it so perfectly in “The Way We Were”

“Can it be that it was all so simple then. Or has time rewritten every line” 😘

Opened up your text

A familiar ache,

Grabbed hold of me.

My heart stopped

For a moment.

There she was

Still shiny and black.

Chuck full of what was,

Promises, sweet words,

Infinite possibilities.

Our first kiss.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

Your Ol’ black truck

Filled with the sweetest memories,

Flashbacks of laughter,

Silliness and hope.

And

Adventures yet to be.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

So clearly I recall

Two people making plans.

I fell in love with you.

Watching the sunset.

While,

Sitting on the tailgate.

Of that Ol’ black truck.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

Has it been 3 years?

What happened to that spark?

That was ignited

On our mountain top?

Cruising to loud music,

As we traveled country roads.

In your Ol’ black truck.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

Somewhere,

Somehow,

As life continued on.

Our fire turned to embers,

The embers grew so cold.

Everything that started

From the spark

We ignited,

In your Ol’ black truck.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

Promises were broken.

Sweet words turned sour.

Infinite possibilities

Were crushed with reality.

All the dreams we shared,

Have passed their

Date of expiration.

Broken and sitting

In the back forty.

Put out to pasture,

Like your ol’ black truck.

Wish we could go back,

And have a little chat.

But it was,

All so long ago.

❤️

Kind Regards and Reminiscing -K
