Motorbike funeral poem for crematorium and church services

A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.
My poetry is written to be gently uplifting and evocative, reminding the reader or listeners of the loved one or friend’s joy of riding motorbikes.
My poems have been very well received at both church and crematorium services, by funeral directors and add a very personal accolade.

Taking a BMW tourer with panniers up into the Scottish Highlands 
 riding along quiet roads with steep rocky crags at your side,
enjoying a sunlit summer’s day with dry roads and light wind,  
smooth winding roads making for a perfect ride.

The chrome V shaped twin carburettor and distinctive musical 
exhaust sound of a Harley Davison Fat Boy motorbike,
wearing a black leather jacket and jeans, an open face bell helmet 
and wrap around sunglasses on a customised trike.

At a vintage bike rally, a pristine restored Norton and sidecar  
with a polished silver chrome teardrop shaped petrol tank,
competing in the TT road race on the Isle of Man watched
 by crowds of spectators standing on a grass roadside bank.

Triumph have built off roaders, tourers, racers and modern classics, 
 some models displaying the mouth organ fuel tank logo,
the Bonneville classic named after world speed record attempts at 
the salt flats reflecting a white shimmering heat glow.

A kaleidoscope of racing leather colours as Yamaha, Honda, BMW,
Ducati and Kawasaki tensely line up on a race’s starting grid,
celebrating on the winner’s lap with a long power wheelie after coming 
coming first in a successful Superbike championship bid.

The practised skill of speedway riders drifting the rear wheel of their 
brakeless bikes around the curves of the oval shaped dirt track,
the roar of the crowd as on the final straight the home team 
narrowly takes the lead, wearing racesuits of red and black.

Whether tucked behind a low windscreen on a sport’s model, 
upright on a tourer or relaxed on a chopper in casual mode,
 a motorbike evokes a unique sensation of speed and freedom 
when riding the challenging hills, twists and turns of the road.

Competing in motocross,  a summer ride to the coast, racing or 
enjoying the daily ride to work throughout the year,
whenever I hear or see riders enjoying riding a motorbike,
this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.

Two extra verses coming soon. Please contact me for details.
