I didn’t drink

I went to a party, Mom,

I remembered what you said.

 

You told me not to drink,

 

So I drank soda instead.

 

I really felt proud inside,

 

The way you said I would.I didn’t drink and drive, Mom,

 

 

Even though the others said I should.

 

I know I did the right thing,Mom,

 

I know you are always right.Now the party is finally ending,

 

As everyone is driving out of sight.

 

 

As I got into my car, Mom,

 

I knew I’d get home in one piece.

 

Because of the way you raised me,

 

So responsible and sweet.

 

 

I started to drive away, Mom,

 

But as I pulled out into the road,

 

The other car didn’t see me,

 

,And hit me like a load.

 

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,

 

I hear the policeman say,”The other guy is drunk,”

 

And now I’m the one who will pay

 

 

I’m lying here dying, Mom….

 

I wish you’d get here soon.

 

How could this happen to me, Mom?

 

My life just burst like a balloon.

 

There is blood all around me, Mom,

 

And most of it is mine.

 

I hear the medic say,

 

I’ll die in a short time.

 

I just wanted to tell you, Mom,

 

I swear I didn’t drink.

 

It was the others, Mom.

 

The others didn’t think.

 

 

He was probably at the same party as I.

 

The only difference is, he drank And I will die.

 

Why do people drink, Mom?

 

It can ruin your whole life.

 

I’m feeling sharp pains now.

 

Pains just like a knife.

 

 

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,

 

And I don’t think it’s fair.

 

I’m lying here dying

 

And all he can do is stare.

 

 

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.

 

Tell Daddy to be brave.

 

And when I go to heaven, Mom,

 

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 would still be alive.

 

 

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.

 

I’m becoming very scared.

 

Please don’t cry for me, Mom.

 

When I needed you,you were always there.

 

I have one last question, Mom.

 

Before I say good bye.I didn’t drink and drive,

 

So why am I the one to die?
