From the very first moment that I caught sight of you
I knew you meant something to me
There was something about the way you stood
So proud, so regal, so totally beautiful
I really wanted to see more of you.
For days I saw you in my dreams,
I spoke of you, I asked about you, I wanted to know all about you.
No one could tell me anything, you were a mystery
I persisted, I called around, a friend went out to try and find you
She wrote her excursion had not been successful
Finally I drove down the highway where I’d first seen you
Be still my heart, there you were, in daylight you even looked more appealing
I got out and walked near you, as I got closer I saw you were older than I thought
It didn’t matter, you had captivated and captured my heart
knowing nothing about you, and not being able to get access to information about you
All I could do was to admire what i saw
Yes I saw you had really lived your life at one time with someone who had really
spent a lot of time with you
Now it appeared you had been cast aside,
probably for a younger model.
Had I the space I’d take you home and let you graze in the pasture
With gentle breezes and flowers in the meadow
Somehow I know the neighbours will just not want you on our front lawn
I’ve taken pictures, and I want you to know
That although I can’t have you with me, you will always have a place in my heart
For now your seats are empty and you aren’t going to go far
but.. you’ve earned your rest the mileage you’ve put on, the challenges you’ve lived
have given you the right to call it a day… I hope someone else will find you some day
and enjoy your as I have.. I cannot bring you home, I can’t own you,
but by golly I sure can appreciate you, yes, just the way you are.
If I could wrap my arms around the Jeep to hug it, I would.
Sharing her with you is all I can do for now
