Cab Driver - Poem by Bill Simmons

Cab driver, turn down fourth street
Turn right at the end of main
I'll be waiting at the culvasac
For you to take me away

Loving each other with all our hearts
Our love it should be free
Loving one another with all our hearts
From her it will never be

Cab driver, I'll be standing
At the street in the rain
May the rain that falls conceal the tears that fall
Help to hide this pain

Love it should be
Given so free
One shouldn't have to beg for
One shouldn't have to plead

From the very start I've given all my heart
But from her it will never be
I'll be in the rain standing with the pain
Please, come and take me

I cannot keep hoping
For what there is not
The third house down
One suitcase I've got

Cab driver, please come and get me
Please come and take me away
For I have given all that I am
There's nothing left of me to stay.
