On a dark winter’s
night a truck with flashing
lights enters the driveway
of a house close to mine.

Not many lights
appear in the house
but the truck is ablaze
having arrived to rescue.

The snow falls gently
while the minutes drift by
as they bring out the man
who is needful of help.

The man now settled
in riding position
the ready driver turns the ignition
the siren begins its warning emission.

A relative follows
into the night
as the truck transports
the ill man’s plight.

The house left behind
one light in one window
keeping alive the hope
that loved ones will return.
