Death of an Innocent
I went to a party Mom and I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink Mom, so I drank soda instead.
I felt very proud mom, the way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom, though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing Mom. You are always right.
The party finally ended Mom. Everyone is driving out of sight.
As I got into my car Mom, I knew I would get home in one piece,
because of the way you raised me Mom, responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away Mom, but as I pulled onto the road,
the other car didn't see me, Mom, and it hit me like a load.
As I lay here on the pavement, Mom, I hear the policeman say,
the other guy is drunk, Mom, and now I'm the one who'll pay.

I am laying here dying Mom, I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me Mom? My life has just burst like a balloon. There is blood all around me Mom, and most of it is mine. I heard the medic say, Mom, that I'll die in a very short time.

I just wanted to tell you Mom, I swear I didn't drink. It was the others, Mom, they just didn't think.  He probably was at the same party as I, the difference is, he drank and I will die.

WHY do people drink Mom? It can ruin your whole life. I'm feeling some sharp pains now, they cut through me like a knife. The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, and I don't think  that's fair.  I am lying here dying and all he can do is stare.

Tell my brother not to cry Mom, and tell Daddy to be brave. 
And when I go to Heaven, Mom, please put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave. Someone should have told him Mom, not to drink and drive. If only they had told him Mom, I'd  still be alive.

Oohh, my breath is getting shorter, Mom. I'm so very scared. Please don't cry for me, Mom. When I needed you, you were always there. I have just one question, Mom, before I say goodbye. I didn't drink and drive, Mom, so why am I the one to die?


PLEASE DO NOT drink and drive!!!! So many lives could be saved each year if you do not drink and drive. If you are at a party and see someone who has had too much to drink, please take away their car keys. Friends do NOT let friends drive drunk.
