    THE BIKER

    I saw you, hug your purse closer to you in the grocery
    store line.
    But, you didn't see me, put an extra $10.00 in the
    collection plate last Sunday.

    I saw you, pull your child closer when we passed each other
    on the sidewalk.
    But, you didn't see me, playing Santa at the local
    mall.

    I saw you,
    change your mind about going into the restaurant.
    But, you didn't see me, attending a meeting to raise
    more money for the hurricane relief.

    I saw you, roll up your window and shake your head when I
    rode by. But, you didn't see me, riding behind you
    when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.

    I saw you, frown at me when I smiled at your children.
    But, you didn't see me, when I
    took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.

    I saw you, stare at my long hair. But, you didn't see
    me, and my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.

    I saw you, roll your eyes at our leather jackets and
    gloves.
    But, you didn't see me, and my brothers donate our old
    ones to those that had none.

    I saw you, look in fright at my tattoos. But, you
    didn't see me, cry as my
    children were born and have their name written over and in
    my heart.

    I saw you, change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
    But, you didn't see me, going home to be with my
    family.

    I saw you, complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can
    be.
    But, you didn't see me, when you were changing the CD
    and drifted into my lane.

    I saw you, yelling at your kids in the car. But, you
    didn't see me, pat my child's hands, knowing he was
    safe behind me.

    I saw you, reading the newspaper or map as you drove down
    the road. But, you didn't see me, squeeze my
    wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.

    I saw you, race down the road in the rain. But, you
    didn't see me, get soaked to the skin so my son could
    have the car to go on his date.

    I saw you, run the yellow light just to save a few minutes
    of time.
    But, you didn't see me, trying to turn right.

    I saw you, cut me off because you needed to be in the lane
    I was in. But, you didn't see me, leave the road.

    I saw you, waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
    But, you didn't see me. I wasn't there.

    I saw you, go home to your family. But, you didn't see
    me.

    Because, I died that day you cut me off.

    I was just a biker. A person with friends and a family.
    But, you didn't see me.

    just remember labor day weekend is comming up,gas is down, and the roads will be packed. so please watch out for the guys on the bikes.:wink:
