• A curl to your lips
    And my face would grin right back
    The sound of your laughter in my ears
    And tears would emerge from my emerald eyes

    Just holding your picture from Graduation
    How it seemed so long ago...
    A simple mistake during your drive home
    A mistake that cost your life

    Our parents always warned us
    "Don't text and drive!" Dad would grumble
    "Buckle up!" Mom would sigh
    Why didn't you listen to such harmless advice?

    The car was fine...
    I remember the scene
    Flashing violently in front of my eyes
    The sheriff is approaching
    "We're sorry," He murmurs
    "Your friend would have survived...
    If she was wearing a Seat Belt...."
