Poem for trucker cousin

Dear Editor:

Hello, my name is Kearston Constable and I am a 15-year-old from Okotoks, Alta.

I am writing you to ask if you accept trucker poetry into your magazine.

I have a trucker prayer that I wrote for my cousin that is a trucker and I would very much like to have it published in a magazine if you are willing to take a look.


A Trucker’s Poem

By Kearston Constable

Keep him safe lord,

Through the good and the bad,

Because the memories he carries are the good times had.

Like everyone else he deserves a chance,

Like to see Belgium, America and even France.

He’s young and still has a long way to go,

So please don’t let him go six feet below.

He is someone we love and care about and will forever,

Like a human being he’s someone we all treasure.

On his journeys through each province and state,

Don’t let him not get there in time, no never at least not late.

He’ll come home and visit when he’s done,

And maybe he’ll show me how to shoot a gun.

So Lord I ask you in this little prayer of mine,

Keep him safe, secure, and completely fine.


Dedicated to Andrew Munro: Andy you’re an amazing person and a terrific friend. You mean the world to me and as you travel I pray every day that God will be there beside you. I love you and you’re the best cousin anyone could ask for.
