Love Ending With Tragedy

Walking down road of life and 
we're talking. 
Sharing our stories- laughing 
and gawking. 

While expressing the troubles 
that made your day hard- 
A climax interrupted,
The ending was scarred. 

A bridge built to pass, we 
thought it would last. 
Like spilling a glass, our 
moment was vast. 

When all of the sudden- The End of our date. 
A murderous halt- the car 
stopped too late. 

You sniffled your nose, a drunk 
driver dozed...
Then BAM! - Our bodies were 
lifeless in clothes. 

It's noises of sirens we both left 
behind,
And a drunk put in cuffs with 
jail on his mind. 

I loved you a lot, but held off to 
say...
I wanted it perfect- the right 
time of day. 

Now I know there was no other 
way,
But to confront this difficult, 
"I love you" cliche. 

Carpe diem, just live like you 
mean it. 
Seize the day, or die like you've 
seen it. 

Every breath allows you the 
chance,
To rethink your life- ask her to 
dance. 

-Yours Truly

    Unfortunately, this was based on a true story. Drunk drivers are the cause of thousands of deaths a year and its very tragic every single time. I just wanted to share the realism in it. -Yours Truly
