he would have been five

Go down

he would have been five

He Would Have Been Five.
He would have been five today, but did not even make it to four,
He was such a bubbly kid playing in the garden like any other kid,
When this moron in car and drunk behind the wheel came through the hedge and smacked him dead,
And ruined our lives forever.
The kid got out the car he said my dad will kill me,
I ran down the path and grabbed him by the throat and said I would do it for him,
He hit me and said again he had damaged the car of his dad, and everything was bad,
I said you killed our son, all he said was that we could make some more,
I smacked him up against the door; he said he would sure me for breaking his nose
I said if I saw him again it would be the last breathe on earth he would take,
Come on he said’ give me a break I passed my test yesterday, I didn’t know what to do’
Our lives were totally shattered that day, a lawyer said it was his first offence, banned for a year and not even a tear and now he is on the road again, telling his mates he killed a kid, that to his mates makes him big!!
Here we are at the front door wondering if we will ever live any more, or if we will ever recover from that fateful day,
When our little boy was taken away.
We have a daughter. She only plays in the back garden never let out near a road,
Why do we not trust justice when someone comes through the fence and destroys what you had?
And all they can say is it wasn’t his day.
Well it has been two years now and nota day has gone by when we did not sit down and cry at the thought of our son
Going out for a run, and someone coming through the fence in a car that was dense, and taking his life from us then.
We still sit and stare at the garden out there and the days it used to be filled with laughter and joy,
But is now filled with despair as we look again out there and see nothing but dark fear that someone is near, to take another life from us now.
He would have been five, and she is just three, she is alive, but me and my wife well we died.

How utterly sad and heart-rending. I pray for your healing and that of your family as well. I hope the New Year brings a brighter future, for the world, and for each of us. Take care, and may God bless you and your family.
