Ode to my first car

My Toyota Rav4

I bought you when my world was turning sour

and I was crying nightly in my bed, lost and confused

you came as an escape from the pain and hot tears

and you brought me to a sleepy, wet city that washed away my frown

and replaced it with memories of joy, great coffee, and chasing the best running highs

in your interior I shed tears from job disappointments and rejection

and together we traveled to new heights: the majestic mountains of Oregon

and down to the coast

You took us to Cape Kwanda where I stood on a cliff above the ocean next to my new friends, embracing my new home

you and I found shelter in Portland, but not without a few scratches and scars

from friends who turned to foes, and when good health became illness

together we ventured to new places and sought out adventure

My Rav4, I shed tears of thanksgiving for your steadfastness

You held my dreams, hopes, my loves, and me for many tough miles

especially when I was too broken for anyone’s arms

you always opened yours up to me
