The Day I met you

by Bernice   Apr 30, 2008

My thoughts and prayers are with your family,
I have never met, but by this tragic accident that I will
never forget,
I have to carry in my heart all the pain and grief
What your family are going through must be total disbelief.

When I close my eyes and all I can see is your car
coming straight for me.
I had to act fast I stood on the breaks couldn't swerve
Your on my left
Why didn't you stay there, instead of driving back,
I was screaming at you to stay where you are,
but all I could here was the crunch of your little car.
My truck went to the right of the road
Carnage and mayhem so I have been told

A man came to the window and said everybody was all
Just a few people injured they got a terrible fright
I screamed look under my truck and tell me the facts
He looked under all right but he never did come back

The sirens were ringing in my ears the gardai confirm
my worst fears

I got out of my truck so afraid to look
My body is shaking from head to foot
My knees are like jelly my head a daze
Everything around me appears like a haze

They want me to lie down and put a collar on my neck
I tell them to go away leave me alone
All I want to do is just go home
They ask me many questions and check my heartbeat
Oh leave me please I just want to sleep
But my mind won't stop going round and round hearing
the noises the dreadful sounds

The news is in the back ground, I hear them say a
young man died in an accident today
The truck driver was not injured just treated for shock
Released from the hospital after a check up

The doctors can't see into my mind
The accident wont leave me its there all the time
I close my eyes I toss and turn
My body feels like it's in an old churn

Our lives have changed forever both yours and mine
They say we will get over it, it just takes time
This day will stay with me for the rest of my life
I must keep a brave face for the sake of my children
and wife.

You hve gone home to your heavenly rest
They say God chooses the young he only takes the best
My Heart is so heavy what can I do
I must live with my memories of the day I met you.
