You will know why!

I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mum
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, Mum
Something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mum, his voice seems far away.

My own blood's 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, Mum
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Someone should have taught him,
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mum
I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mum,
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say, 'I love you, Mum!'
So I love you and good-bye.

Thank you sis)

when things are down and we are out of our mind,
Remember just remember ALLAH is The Kind,
when life is in darkness and nothing is right,
Remember just remember through the darkness ALLAH is The Light,
When nothing makes sense and your heading for demise,
Remember just remember it doesnt make sense but ALLAH is The Wise,
When times are troubled and no one seems to care,
Remember just remember ALLAH wont hurt you,HE is The Fair,
When your heart is breaking and your pain makes you fall,
Remember just remember ALLAH sees it all,
When your are weak and the road seems long,
Remember just remember seeks strength from ALLAH The Strong,
When life is a burden and everything is unstable,
Remember just remember ALLAH is The Able,
When the way is cloudy and there is no one by your side,
Remember just remember ALLAH is The Only Guide,
When no one wants to listen or is willing to lend an ear,
Remember just remember ALLAH is always ready to Hear,
When you're down in your misery and there's no where to run,
Remember just remember you can always run to The One and Only,
When you're all alone and your pain has no end,
Remember just remember ALLAH is The One to Mend,
