Daisy your coat is rough, rusted;

I’d restore your coat true, trust me. 

It used to shine an apple-red.
You’re engine won’t start; words unsaid they’re frustrating. 


Daisy May you had your days like, 

The woman I named you for, my wife.

But she is gone now, you’ve decayed

Both of you leave me so dismayed; inside I’ve strife


Daisy, I wonder should I send you —

To the scrap yard, or sell you? 

Should I restore you to glory? 

So those I meet know your story and my wife’s too? 


Nostalgia overwhelms, memories —

Cloud my mind thinking too plenty —

Of back in the day of youth’s glow

When I had both Daisies, I drove through life, with them.

      Thanks Jade. I have a feeling he was quite an elderly guy who lost his wife. Very sad still, but not so sad as his time when he will see her again in heaven, isn’t so far off. Thanks for commenting Jade and have a lovely weekend 🙂

    What a nostalgic poem. I feel sorry for him, but at least he has his good memories of both Daisy’s.

      Thanks Jacqueline. Yes it’s sad looking back but he has his truck and memories and will probably see his other Daisy soon 🙂
