everyone needs a hero or two
someone to brighten their days
emitting beams of happiness
in amongst the grey

to spike some excitement
to elevate life above mundane
to generate fond memories
to be recalled in days of rain

typically, they are out of reach
by circumstance or attitude
we look on from afar
practising distant gratitude

but over time (after many occasions)
the geography can change
and sometimes, just sometime
they get closer - within range

you hang around to chat
they remember who you are
a rapport over a decade builds
they wind up as passengers in your car

a short trip to their place of stay
10 minutes tops, I'd say
but these little transportations
leave me smiling for days
