Mother Why?

Published: July 2007

I woke up and felt as if my life just ended,
Without knowing how my life may begin,
I get a call my mothers dead,
So many thoughts went threw my head,
Without even a good-bye,
How come there's so many lies,
She drank that night,
It wasn't right,
Why she have to drink that much,
And get in a car with so many drunks,
She would have been alive,
If she didn't drink that night,
Now I'm here not knowing why,
Stuck without my mother,
And trying to help my father,
My dad is sick as well,
All I want to do is yell,
What am I suppose to do,
I'm stuck here without you,
I love you mom and miss you with all my heart!
