  • 11. POEM
    they watched in silence
    as he bent near
    and whispered the words...
    "I LOVE YOU" in her ear
    he touched her face
    and started to cry
    as he put on his ring
    and wanted to die
    and just then
    the wind began to blow
    as they lowered her casket
    into the snow...
    this is what happens
    to man alive...
    when friends let friends...
    drink and drive.
    Near to the door
    he paused to stand
    as he took his class ring
    off her hand
    all who were watching
    did not speak
    as a silent tear
    ran down his cheek
    and through his mind
    the memories ran
    of the moments they walked
    and ran in the sand (hand and hand)
    but now her eyes were so terribly cold
    for he would never again
    have her to hold
