Go Big Red!

"BECAUSE YOU DROVE ME"

For all those times you drove with me,
for all the truth that you let me see,
for all the joy you brought to my life,
for all the wrong turns that you made right,
for every dream you made come true,
for all the love i've found in driving you,
you're the one who helped me out--never let me fall,
you're the one who drove me through, through it all!

You were my strength when I was weak,
you were my voice when i couldn't speak,
you were my eyes when i couldn't see,
you saw the best there was in me,
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach,
you gave me faith cause you believed,
I'm everything I am--because you drove me.

You gave me miles and made me fly,
your wheel touched my hand and made me want to touch the sky,
I lost my faith in things old, you gave it back to me,
you said no star or state was out of reach,
you drove with me and I drove half-proud,
I had your love I had it all!!

I'm grateful for each day you gave me,
Baby I don't that much but I know this much is true,
I was blessed because I was driven by you, with you, in you!

Nate, I hope this poetic adaptation from the great Celine Dion serves as my presence at your blowout, 200,000 mile block party for Big Red today. Treat him well. He still needs the Lord you know.
