My Final Goodbye


This is my final goodbye

My smiles were all a lie

I just wanted to die

I got my wish mommy

I didn't commit suicide

I didn't take my life


He was drunk

He was texting

All while he was driving

I was crossing the street

It was a school crossing.


He was speeding

There was a little girl in front of me

I knew he was going to hit her

I jumped in front of her and pushed her out of the way



He hops out of his car

Runs up to me crying

"Please don't die, I'm sorry"

My breathing is shaky

Sirens getting louder


Mommy is screaming

Crying out for her baby

One breath

Two breath



I was supposed to graduate

I was supposed to go to college

I was supposed to grow old

Sure I wanted to die

But not quite yet


You took me from my friends and family

You were drunk

If only you would've stayed home

If only you weren't drunk and texting


I'm glad you hit me and not the little girl

This is my final goodbye

Please don't drink and drive

Please don't text and drive

Yes this

This is my final goodbye
