I went to School and remember what you said.
You told me you loved me and hugged me instead.
I felt so sad, something was just not right.
I thought all day, I hope he’s alright.
I couldn’t call him.
Late Monday night I got a call, someone saying something….
But, the voice seemed so very low;
I hug up the phone,
Waiting for your call to see what’s wrong.
Some hours went by,
I was really getting worried.
12:00 midnight a man came to my home asking for me.
He told me there’s been a horrible accident.
Tears filled my eyes; I asked if he was still alive.
The man sadly said, “No mam”.
He was driving drunk, ran off the road and hit a car.
He killed two innocent people. I can’t believe he was talking to me,
Knowing my father can’t comfort and hug me.
Only if I could see him once more to tell him,
“Daddy, I love you. I wish you would stay with me and tell me you loved me and hug me once more”.
I cried to think I’m going to see a cold body in a box.
Me crying, knowing he’s in heaven saying,
“Good bye, sweetie. I am sorry I choosed to drink and drive.
I’m sorry I hurt others and let you down.
I am sorry, I am sorry. I love you”.
I wish someone had helped him and not let him drive
He’s gone forever.
But still alive in my heart. I still love him and forgive him for what he has done.
I only wish he was still alive and I could tell my own father,
“I wish you didn’t choose to drink and drive,
Maybe you would still be alive.
In the loving memory of my Father Stewart. w.J.
