Since the accident, I hear people say,
Everythings gonna be okay.
When I hear this, I want to scream.
The people who say it Are on the wrong team.
My friend was taken; A part of my heart went with her.
People tell me Ill be better; I beg to differ.
That drunk driver came out of nowhere
And crashed into my friend.
And at the hospital I cried, Because I heard the end.
The day we buried her in the ground
Was the most heartbroken day Ive ever had.
To see her thereSo silent, So cold
You wont believe the feeling
To know your friend wont come back.
No more phone calls, No more sleepovers;
All because a kid thought it was cool to drink and drive.
And people try to tell you, Its gonna be okay.
Youll get over it, Youll move on, Take it day by day.
Maybe if they were feeling What Im feeling now,
Theyd know: Its not gonna be okay.
Cause the okay would only be
To have my best friend back,
For the phone calls, The sleepovers,
For the big friendship things.
Just to go back and make that kid think.
If only it were possible And the heartbreak would go away,
But if it doesnt happen now, Then I hope it will one day.
Cause this hole in my heart Is waiting to be filled.
Cause only then will everything be okay.
Jessica says, I wrote this poem for the families and friends who have lost their loved ones by drunk drivers. And to express their feelings on why the only 'okay' will be to have them back.
