Ride of Silence Poem:

The Ride of Silence…

Tonight we number many but ride as one

In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons

With helmets on tight and heads down low,

We ride in silence, cautious and slow

The wheels start spinning in the lead pack

But tonight we ride and no one attacks

The dark sunglasses cover our tears Remembering those we held so dear

Tonight’s ride is to make others aware

The road is there for all to share

To those not with us or by our side,

May God be your partner on your final ride

- Mike Murgas

 

(Spanish) Marcha en silencio…

Somos muchos esta noche, pero marchamos como un solo hombre

en honor de padres, madres, amigos o hijos que ya no tienen nombre…

Con el casco bien calado y la cabeza agachada

marchamos en silencio, prudente la mirada.

En cabeza oigo ruedas su recorrido comenzar,

pero hoy solo marchamos, nadie quiere atacar.

Disimulan nuestras lágrimas las gafas oscuras

recordando nuestros seres queridos con ternura.

La marcha de esta noche es para otros advertir

que las carreteras son y están para compartir.

Para aquellos que con nosotros ya no están:

¡que Dios les acompañe en la marcha final!

Traducción: Claudia Tarozzi Sirola
