Touching & True


(Please read all the way to the bottom and sign your
name- even if you're not a Mom.)

I went to a party, Mom
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink liquor
So I had a Sprite instead.

I felt so proud of myself
The way you said I would.
That I didn't drink and drive
Though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice,
And your advice to me was right,
The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car,
Sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming, Mom
Something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mom, his voice seems so far away.

My blood is all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.

I'm sure the guy had no idea,
While he was flying high,
Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.

So why do people do it, Mom
Knowing that it destroys lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid,
Tell father to be brave,
And when I go to heaven, Mom
Put an Angel on my grave.

Someone should have taught him,
That its wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me, Mom
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say to you,
"I love you, Mom, good-bye."
