“Went to a Party Mom”

I really cant remember where I got this poem from, I think it was from a blog I read. If it is yours or you know who I can credit it to, please post a comment so I can give you/them the recognition you/they deserve.

I’m not embarrassed to say that I cry every time I read it. If it moves you and you have a blog, why not post it as well and share the message. Hopefully it will get through to someone who is thinking of having a good drink and getting into their car sometime soon.


I went to a party,

And remembered what you said.

You told me not to drink Mom,

So I had a sprite instead


I felt proud of myself,

The way you said I would,

That I didn’t drink and drive,

Though some friends said I should.


I made a healthy choice,

And your advice to me was right.

The party finally ended,

And the kids drove out of sight.


I got into my car,

Sure to get home in one piece.

I never knew what was coming Mom,

Something I expected least.


Now I’m lying on the pavement,

And I hear a policeman say,

The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,

Mom, his voice seems far away.


My own bloods all around me,

As I try hard not to cry.

I can hear the paramedic say,

“This girl is going to die”.


I’m sure the guy had no idea,

While he was flying high.

Because he chose to drink and drive,

Now I would have to die.


So why do people do it, Mom

Knowing that it ruins lives?

And now the pain is cutting me,

Like a hundred stabbing knives.


Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom

Tell Daddy to be brave.

And when I go to heaven

Put ‘Mommys Girl’ on my grave.


Someone should have taught him,

That’s its wrong to drink and drive.

Maybe if his parents had,

I’d still be alive.


My breath is getting shorter,

Mom, I’m getting really scared.

These are my final moments,

And I feel so unprepared.


I wish that you could hold me Mom,

As I lie here and die.

I wish that I could say “I love you, Mom!”

So I love you and good-bye.
