Went to a party Mom...

(read all the way to the bottom and sign your name)

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

I felt 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 far away.

My own blood's 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 a do it, Mom
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
like a hundred stabbing

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
Tell daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven,
put ' Mommy's Girl' on my grave.

Someone should have taught him,
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I'd 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, 'I love you, Mom!'
So I love you and good-bye.

Something to think about as my 18 year old cousin was hit head on by kids that had been huffing and driving the wrong way on a Interstate at of 100+ mph, my cousin was ejected from the car while waring a seatbelt he is alive today thank god, but he has spent countless days recovering from this. It was the night before he was to start college, he HAD free ride baseball, soccer and academic scholarships to UK. All sports scholarships where lost because of dwi,dui how ever it fits.
