Death of an Innocent

I went to a party mum,
I remembered what you said
You told me not to drink mum,
So I drank soda instead

I really felt proud inside mum,
The way you said I would
I didn't drink and drive mum,
Though the others said I should

I started to drive away mum,
But as I pulled out into the road
The other car didn't see me mum,
It hit me like a load

As I lie there on the pavement mum,
I hear the policeman say
The other guy is drunk mum,
And I'm the one who will pay

I'm lying here dying mum,
I wish you'd get here soon
How could this happen to me mum?
My life burst like a balloon

There is blood all around me mum,
And most of it is mine
I hear the doctor say mum,
I'll die in a short time

I just want to let you know mum,
I swear I didn't drink
It was the others mum,
The others didn't think

Why do people drink mum?
It can ruin your whole life
I'm feeling pains in my stomach mum
Pains just like a knife

The guy who hit me is walking mum,
And I don't think it's fair
I'm lying here dying mum,
And all he can do is stare

Tell my brother not to cry mum,
Tell daddy to be brave
Tell them when I'm in Heaven mum,
I'll cherish the love they gave

Someone should have told him mum,
Not to drink and drive
If only they had told him mum,
I would still be alive

My breath is getting shorter mum,
I'm feeling closer to death
Please don't cry for me mum,
Just pray for me instead

This is the end mum,
I want to look you in the eye
To say these final words mum,
I love you and goodbye

A Deaf Child's Prayer

Do angels sing in Heaven, Lord?
Will I hear music there?
Or must I stand in a corner, Lord
While others join in prayer?

I wonder what they're saying, Lord
As often as I do here
Will I sit in lonely stillness, Lord
While the bells ring loud and clear?

Will all the saints there praise You, Lord
While I in silence wait?
Will someone up there in Heaven, Lord
Help me through the gate?

Then God who loves the humble
Whispered to the deaf ear
My dear, has no one told you
There is no silence here

Hold out your hands, Oh little one
For Heaven all to see
We've heard the prayers so often
Each prayer reached up to Me

See all the angels waiting
The gates are open wide
Your crown of life awaits you
In there you shall abide

I have this song to give you
You'll hear it loud and clear
And the song you hear, My dear one
Will be the sweetest song up here

Daddy's Day

Her hair up in a pony tail
Her favourite dress tied with a bow
Today was Daddy's Day at school
And she couldn't wait to go

But her mummy tried to tell her
That she probably should stay home
Why the kids might not understand
If she went to school alone

But she was not afraid
She knew just what to say
What to tell her classmates
On this Daddy's Day

But still her mother worried
For her to face this day alone
And that was why once again
She tried to keep her daughter home

But the little girl went to school
Eager to tell them all
About a dad she never sees
A dad who never calls

There were daddies along the back-wall
For everyone to meet
Children squirming impatiently
Anxious in their seats

One by one the teacher called
A student from the class
To introduce their daddy
As seconds slowly passed

At last the teacher called her name
Every child turned to stare
Each of them were searching
For a man who wasn't there

"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out
"She probably doesn't have one,"
Another student dared to shout

And from somewhere near the back
She heard a daddy say
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day."

The words did not offend her
As she smiled at her friends
And looked back at her teacher
Who told her to begin

And with hands behind her back
Slowly she began to speak
And out from the mouth of a child
Came words incredibly unique

"My Daddy couldn't be here
Because he lives so far away
But I know he wishes that he could
Be with me on this day

And though you cannot meet him
I wanted you to know
All about my daddy
And how much he loves me so

He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike
He surprised me with pink roses
And taught me to fly a kite

We used to share fudge sundaes
And ice-cream in a cone
And though you cannot see him
I'm not standing all alone

'Cause my daddy's always with me
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me
He'll forever be in my heart"

With that her little hand reached up
And lay across her chest
Feeling her own heartbeat
Beneath her favourite dress

And from somewhere in the crowd of dads
Her mother stood in tears
Proudly watching her daughter
Who was wise beyond her years

For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life
Doing what was best for her
Doing what was right

And when she dropped her hand back down
Staring straight into the crowd
She finished with a voice so soft
But its message clear and loud

"I love my daddy very much,
He's my shining star
And if he could he would be here
But Heaven's just too far

But sometimes when I close my eyes
It's like he never went away"
And then she closed her eyes once more
And saw him there that day

And to her mother's amazement
She witnessed with surprise
A room full of daddies and children
All starting to close their eyes

Who knows what they saw before them
Who knows what they felt inside
Perhaps for merely a second
They saw him at her side

"I know you're with me Daddy,"
To the silence she called out
And what happened next made believers
Of those once filled with doubt

Not one in that room could explain it
For each of their eyes had been closed
But there placed on her desktop
Was a beautiful fragrant pink rose

And a child was blessed, if only a moment
By the love of her shining bright star
And given the gift of believing
That Heaven is never too far

I ran into a stranger, as he passed by
"Oh excuse me please", was my reply
He responded, "Please excuse me too"
"I just wasn't watching for you"

We were very polite, this stranger and I
Then went on our way and said goodbye
But at home a different story is told
How we treat our loved ones, the young and the old

Later that day, cooking the evening meal
My son stood beside me very still
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down
"Move out of the way!" I said with a frown

He walked away, his little heart broken
I didn't realise how harshly I'd spoken
While I lay awake in my bed
God's quiet voice came to me and said

"While dealing with a stranger
common courtesy you use
But the family you love, you seem to abuse
Go and look on the kitchen floor
You'll find some flowers there by the door"

"Those are the flowers he brought for you
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise
You never saw the tears that were filling his eyes"

By this time, I felt very small
And now my tears began to fall
I quietly went and knelt by his bed
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said

"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"
He smiled, "I found them, out by the tree"
"I picked them because they're pretty like you
I knew you'd like them, especially the blue."

I said, "Son, I'm sorry for the way I acted today"
"I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."
He said, "Oh Mum, that is okay"
"I still love you anyway"

I replied, "Son, I love you too"
"And I like the flowers, especially the blue"
