From S.

I could nt sleep last night…..just another sign of growing old I suppose. I could nt get into my latest book so I wrote a piece for here – Having censored myself :).., I looked around the etheral world of the blog. I read and re read a friends essay as I did so I found this ……I don’t as a rule copy a complete piece but as it is relevant to Christmas….


I went to a party
and remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, mum
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, mum,
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,
mum, 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 do it, mum,
knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, mum,
tell daddy to be brave.
And when i go to heaven,
put "Daddy’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, mum,
I’m getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
and i’m so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me mum,
as I lie here and die.
I wish I could say "I love you mum!"
so I love you and goodbye !!

  1. That has the tears rolling down my cheeks! – it is so sad but could be so true and yes it will happen as no matter how many warnings they get – drink drivers will still drink and drive! Leave the car at home and spend some of your drink money on taxis – far safer and you wil live to have another drink tomorrow – if thats what you want.Thank you for your comment – I am waiting to see any reactions – lol
