Dreams Come True
When A Women Loves A Man
Because I Love You
>> View all 59
My heart goes out to the families
who have lost someone
because of a Drunken Driver..
Mother please don't cry for me
I am safe in Heaven
Life was short but thank you Mom
For giving me Love and a shoulder to cry on
I should have worn my seat belt
I did not think this could happen to me..
I never thought that I would be the
victim of a tragedy..
Someone was drinking and not thinking
That I was in the car..the one that it smashed
into and threw me out so far..
How could he be so careless
put you through such pain
Why did he have to drive like that
My death was all in vein..
He did Not read the Posters
He ignored the Law
Driving Under the influence
Now I am no More..
All my friends must suffer
Everyone I knew
Because of this Selfish criminal
Who disobeyed the rule
Take away his license..take away his keys
Take away his freedom...
Bring him to his knees
Open up his eyes
Let him see what he has done
To me and my Family
He should have been the one
I will never see my friends again
I was only fifteen...
I did not live long enough
to have a sweet sixteen..
I will never graduate college
I will never have a career
I will never have a wedding or raise a family
Give my family justice..
Make him face the Death Penalty..
Show him no mercy for what he has done..
may he always see darkness and never see
I know it will never bring me back
But maybe it will save the life of
Never Ever Drive if you have been drinking
Always wear your seat belt in case someones
If you know someone like that..Take away the Keys...
Call someone to pick you up
No matter the time of day
Think before You Drink..
Thats when it will all be clear
If he hadn't driven intoxicated
I would still be here...

|All so very true and teardrops pay for the price of each drink. Well done Rosalie.

|Powerful yet inspiring; it is difficult to understand why people continue to drive drunk, and yet nothing seems to be done; I persnoally think they ought to revoke a person's license for driving drunk, NO exceptions instead of slapping them on the wrist and letting them drive again. Too many families have been affected by the actions of someonw who shouldn't have been behind the wheel in the first place. If they kill, charge them with manslaughter or murder; they used their car as a weapon with absolutely no regard for human life.
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <

|You have penned a most heartfelt, inspirational piece of poetry. It is difficult to understand why some insist on driving while they are so intoxicated. Thank you for sharing this.

|A poignant poem and hopefully it will touch those who drink and drive to think twice.|
