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?
