Tribute

Tough and weathered from too many nights out in the cold
You always let out a low groan each morning before finally getting up
I loved you all the same
Despite others called you worthless and past your prime, old
Skin like grey leather, enduring endless torment merely to survive
I loved you all the same
Inconstant airflow, laborious breaths, as if each moment was agony
A constant dull rumble, reminder that you were still alive
I loved you all the same
Even before our first official meeting, you lurk in my memory
Short spine, cracked heels, cloudy eyes
I loved you all the same
Decades ended, twisted metal meant your demise
I will never forget you
1995 Ford Explorer
