The Highway Man

Weekend repeats
from the past

driving down the road
a car in trouble
forlornly lights flickered
needing of help
off to the side
kids in tow she waited

dressed to the nines
best outfit ever
someone would stop
it wouldn't be he
late for a dinner
excuses not given

driving by saw the flat
darkness was coming
no help on the way
rain started to fall

right thing to do
he knew in his mind
deep heavy sigh
he knew his task

minutes later
done with the change
covered in grease
and mud and sweat
kids in the car
the look in her eyes
a kiss on the cheek
payment enough

arrived at dinner
with a tale to tell
a hero at last
for all to know
