I don't know how how old this is, and I havn't seen it on the Zone before.
So this is for all the guys who havn't read it before. I think it is a brilliant poem! In memory of all those who lost their lives on two wheels!

I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.
But 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.
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 coats and gloves.
But 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.
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.
