The Cherokee and Me

So there you are
in the middle
of no where
or maybe
fifteen miles further
down the road from it.

And the transmission
goes CLUNK
and your heart goes
and if you're lucky
you'll find a 
place to stop
where you can
buy a bag of peanuts
and a coffee.

Because you're going to spend
the rest of the night
tucked away in your cabin
how the heck
am I ever
going to get home.

And then along
comes a smile
and a hug
and a ride
back to
where you belong
just for a moment
you think everything
just might be ok.
