Instructions: On Unlined paper write the following poem:

Tailgate for Two

From the back of my truck

There’s a tranquil view

Perfect for a setting sun

And a tailgate for two

Watching that sun go down

Brings thoughts of years gone by

The things I did or didn’t do

And all the reasons why

Sitting here with you

Confessing secrets untold

Sharing life stories

And heartbreaks of old

Heart influences

From many tears and smiles

I’m amazed as I tally up

The years and miles

Battles of the heart

Regardless of won or lost

In time, everyone wins and loses

When you calculate the costs

And your own treasured past

To me you entrust

Our lives not so different

Survival we know a must

In the school of life

We’re to learn from our mistakes

And some might wrongly think

A fool of them it makes

Thought you were the only one

Not quite good enough

Same as me you wonder

Just who you can trust?

Looking back over the years

And many lessons learned

Things we might have done differently

Had we known the knowledge we yearned

So quickly the hours they pass

From sunset to this starlight view

Thank you for your warm company

On this tailgate for two.
