Goodbye My Friend

found and adopted from the Blue Knights VI website.

How do you say goodbye to a friend
And have it mean as much.
To say we'll miss your burly voice, and rugged looks,
And miss your gentle touch.

You were a special kind of man,
That we knew and loved so dear.
We'll miss you in our daily lives,
But know that you're still here.

The rides will never be the same,
But the rides will never end.
We know the way you wanted it,
My dear and loving friend.

We rode together many of times,
And many of times we talked.
Many of times I looked in my mirror,
And a couple of times I was shocked.

Your ever presence was always felt,
Your engine was always heard.
Now that you're gone, your engine has stopped,
You are unable to utter a word.

Someday I know I'll look in my mirror,
And shudder at what I will see.
That shining Blue Harley coming behind,
Watching over the ride and me.

How do you say goodbye to a friend,
And have it mean as much.
To be there for the last farewell,
And still able to feel your touch.

Motor Officers

It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.

They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast...
They look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.

Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun.

And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by...
And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.

They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.

Like men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light...
Then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.

Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind.

Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.

So if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe.

For Blue Knights are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.
