On a long dark road in October we lost a beautiful part of our family, She died on her way home from work because of a halloween prank, four teenagers had hung a dummy over an overpass, and it looked like a man walking on the busy highway, that night was very foggy, she swerved not to hit what she thought was a man, and her car spun out of control and rolled several times, we lost her that October evening; the four teens are now serving life for her death, she was only 23yrs old -------------------------------


I walk the roads of dreary darkness,
worn and all alone,
I tried so hard to break these screams,
but "its you" I cannot hold,
I slip away ..... inside the night,
granted no-one sees,
I try to find the power,
but again ..... death speaks to me,

Hoping somehow .... somewhere,
my spirit wouldn't drain,
and down this dreary road,
I could wander without pain,

Darkness stands as my own shadow,
no light could fill this void,
emptiness aches inside me,
my heart holds not a joy,

I begged and prayed, it wouldn't be,
as darkness stills the night,
Is my spirit, a draining soul,
that hopes to find whats right,

My mind drifts on, as a turning page,
wandering in a hole,
back to you, my tears begin,
'why is death, sooooo ....... very cold,

When will this end, I scream,
and my echo'es chill ..... returns,
Life is Life, and Death is Death,
and you will feel the burn,

My spirit fights the pain,
that leaks of broken love,
my questions aren't answered,
though my veins have lost more blood,

Why must I lose ..... another child,
and bear the worst of pain,
as I walk another mile down,
to identify her remains!

You have written exquisitely about the fragility of life. So much sadness penned within these beautiful lines.

Oh Valerie this tore my heart out as kids need to start thinking of the outcome of pranks, a young girl just starting out in life has lost her chance to live. So sorry to hear this, sure wish the young ones could read this.

This is as Mary said heart wrenching to say the very least for not only was this young girls beauty robbed from this world but also the stupidity of the act also deprived the future to four boys and no doubt broke the hearts of all parents and loved ones involved. Death is never easy to accept but when it is such a needless death that it is that much harder...she sings with the Angels.

Valerie,

Such a heartwrending poem! Nothing is so hard as a mother losing a child especially when it didn't have to be.

Mary
