Just A Biker

I saw you; hug your purse closer to you
in the grocery store line.

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.

You didn't see me; playing Santa at the
local mall.



I saw you; change your mind about going into the restaurant.

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

You didn't see me; driving behind you when
you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.



I saw you; frown at me when I smiled at your children.

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.

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 coats and gloves.

You didn't see me; and my brothers donate
our old coats and gloves to those that had none.



I saw you; look in fright at my tattoos.

You didn't see me; cry as my children were
born and having their name tattooed on my skin and in my heart.



I saw you; change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You didn't see me; leave the road.



I saw you; waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.

You didn't see me; I wasn't there.



I saw you go home to your family.

You didn't see me, because I died that day
you cut me off. To you I was just a biker, not a person with a family and
friends.

You didn't see me; and now they will never
see me again.



PLEASE PASS THIS ON FOR YOUR FRIENDS WHO
RIDE OR HAD SOMEONE WHO MAY HAVE DIED WHILE RIDING A MOTORCYCLE.



Also for those who feel the same way as above about the biker. Pass this
on... Lets help make people aware!!

This really hit home for me. My husband rides a motorcycle and sometimes takes our 9 year old daughter with him( i don't feel my sons are old enough yet) So ladies next time you see someone on a motorcycle please be careful, it could be my husband ,it could be my child.
