It's Not The Ten Ton Bus That Kills Me

i was driving,
songs of love and heart break,
not giving a care.
a child
in front saw me singing
waving for hours.
i only noticed the last minute.
he mouthed, "Everything will be alright."
I was ready to change the station,
i had enough of tears.
But he mouthed, "Everything will be alright."

I decided not to touch the dial.

The song ended with,
"I know... when you're gone... you're gone."
The guitar sang me asleep
behind the wheel.
windows were down.
It felt cool at first,
then i felt the heat.
