Heaven Is Knockin' On All Four Doors!

It had been too long.

I went to see her just today.

It was the first time,

Since they took her away.

It’s been many years,

Since we’d been apart.

No one can know how heavy,

This has made my heart.

She was faithful,

She had never let me down.

No one can know the grief,

There is no solace to be found.

She’s a prisoner.

She’s locked away inside,

As I saw her prison, chains,

And guards I cried.

But now she’s knocking,

On heaven’s door,

But I hope and pray,

That we’re joined once more.

But it’s hard for me,

To report,

As she’s kept,

On life support.

Hope dims. Faith fades.

There is no joy to seek,

With a $2000 bill,

From a radiator leak!

by Micky Dee

On August 4, 2010 it was raining just a tad so I left my house late hoping the rain would abate and the roads would dry a little.

I met some of the folks on Lawrence and we chased the faster guys.

We didn't go really hard but we didn't tarry.

If we're smiling, we aren't going hard.

Stan is ahead of us here.

Damp fun was had by all.

We caught up with them at our rest stop.

The over-clouded sky made for a great temperature.

Highland Farms Road

I love the farm behind us here.

Funny how we attribute human characteristics to our cars. My dad always named his and he said if you treated her well (they were always female) they would never let you down.

As an adult, I find I have grown attached to mine as well.

Great poem and such captivating pics.

A good poem, I first thought you meant a human then I realised it was something more important than a human being to some.

I don't think you are in that category though.

Another fun hub but sounds like an expensive one to. I love the scenic pics and farms and such as you drive up and down those country roads. I hope you find a way to keep your friend, surely of all the people you know, one must be a great mechanic and can cushion the blow with an offering of service.

Always Exploring,

You should have been there!

It was spitting and hissing,

We were one,

And now, she's missing!


You know how it is,

With someone you love,

After the recycling,

Will she go "below" or "above"?

Oh Hummingbird!

She is a 94 Caddy,

With so much life left!

Which is why,

I'm so bereft.


I'm sure you've felt the same,

About another car of a different name.

But I really shouldn't take this too far.

After all it really is, just a car!

On one of my walks the other day. I saw the very same caddy, color and all sitting in someones driveway. Both back tires flat and abandoned looking. I said to my partner, I wonder what happened here. I felt like knocking on the person's door and asking if they were selling it. It seemed a shame, but alas one never knows the stories behind the abandonment. Maybe some one passed away and just left it there to die as well.

Yo Saddlerider! This 94 doesn't have the typical Caddy emblem on the front and it has wheel well skirts. It's comfortable. I don't like putting money into cars. I got bogged down by the promise of only a $600 bill. Now- do I buy this Caddy for another $1200. It's being repaired now. I love her but I wish I had "put her down" before the first repair.

Yo Nell! Queen of all the Roses!

Many stories she will tell.

None can be told better,

Than by this beautiful Nell.

When the repair bills kept escalating we finally put our 1990 caddy to sleep. Alas! Still miss the old girl! Hope yours gets out of intensive care soon and gives you many more happy years together. :-)

Oh Peggy! Just got word awhile ago. $2000. I'm letting the guy have her with hopes he can work on it and make a good car for himself. I have to let her go. Oh well!

prey profile image

prey 6 years ago from places you should hope we never meet

I hate you

I was crying

As I read through

I am not lying

Oh so angry my blood boils

I hate damn cars always female names

poor micky dee his rad has spoiled

worse more so you tricked me into a game

Tonight best lock the house well

Never know who's hunting

I guarantee I'll tell

A certain Predator ah, something

May your car not start

and you see the pull

that tore my heart

with shock now full

listen here, listen to such

I have, and now below and above

cherish you so incredibly much

I do do think I am falling in love

Who could possibly wish badly

on a rad loved madly

Micky Dee

I love Thee

awesome job, do hope it;s not too expensive in the end, my friend

Hey Prey! Long time! Thank you Ma'am. The Caddy is belly up for me I'm afraid. I will sign the title over to a mechanic and I hope he makes a car out of her. I can't put another $2000 into her. I'd rather give her away and hope she makes it back on the road again. Thanks for stopping Prey! God bless you for the poem!!! Now- let us Prey!

We do grow attached to our chariots of steel, that transport us away from the monotonies of life. The car seat fits snug, well worn over our bottoms, and sometimes the stale scent of perfume makes us smile. Sure the door squeaks and the brakes squeal, but it is the memories that are passengers there, that make our old cars special. So the radiator took a leak, hissing at you like a snake, and rattled at you till it found its way to a repair shop and left you stranded, guess you'll be putting the petal to two pumps of metal and just bike for a few days. But then you always did enjoy two wheels as well. Superb write~~~MFB III
