Favorite Quote:
She can because she thinks she can.

How is it going baby?
I love you my little dear
It is hard to believe you will be 21 this year
Do you remember that fateful night?
I only wish it turned out all right.
When you got in that car, you had not a clue
If only I told you what to do.
Do not talk to strangers
Say please and thank you
Look both ways before crossing the street
Remember to tie your shoe
The list goes on and on for so long
Nevertheless, how does one miss?
Make everything wrong?
That call how it made my heart race
However, yours did not even have a pace
If only I could see your pretty little face
One two three
Drinks are on me
What were you thinking?
Next time take the keys
On the other hand, just say no
How I wish, those words were said
Maybe then, you would be safe in your bed
For how long was that light red?
Then the red was on your head
I am sending my little Angel a birthday wish
I only hope you will take this kiss

The author's comments:
This was written for a drivers ed project it shows the results of drinking and driving and how it affects a person. I didn't say if the speaker or the victim were male or female because these kinds of tragedies happen to everyone. Don't assume that it won't happen to you because it happens everyday to all kinds of people.
