A Truck Driver
Most of our life is spent riding alone.
In sharing the road, irritations are known.
We have to set an example, each day of the year.
In all kinds of weather, showing no fear.
To some, We've won the title, "Knights of the Road",
To others, names of blasphemy code.
Courtesy is our policy, expecting no thanks
In changing a tire, our reward is just "thanks".
Our most haunting fear, is a child on the road.
Keeping our distance, we deliver our load.
Our prayer for the day, is to help, in some way.
For a truck driver too, gives thanks for his day.
