I Want You To Know That I Was Right There With You.

This has been, without a doubt, one of the most painful days of my life.
I don’t think I would have been able to get through it without you. I may have needed an ambulance.


It was late that night or morning.
I saw you dozing off in your big rig and my eyes began to water.
No, not yet. It ain’t your time yet. I’m right behind you, I’m coming.
Flick on the high-beams and wake you up in the early hours of the morning.

Do you know how much I love you?
Your pushin’ it every night delivering goods to some place. Heaven knows there’s a family waiting for you somewhere.

Good, your awake again.
Now I’m your companion for the next few hours.
I’ll stay right with you the whole way just as long you keep pushin’ me after a long downhill.
Al’s with us too. Let’s rip it.

You kept on going though. I had to stop. It had been a very long day, always, ain’t that right?

That night, however it came about, helped me to realize that the detachment I thought I was feeling was never really there.
I had to see that someone else needed help to know that I still cared and do care.
Just like I know that you care because today was a very hard, painful day, and you got me through it.

What else is there to say?
I miss you. I miss a lot of people. I know you need your space.
I’ll always be here and it does and doesn’t matter.

Just keep pushin’ me. I’ll stay with you as long as I can,

Matthew R. Polkinghorne
