Close 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 laughed in the sand
but now her eyes were so terrible cold
for he would never again
have her to hold
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.

I wrote this poem for my friend Steve who just recently lost his girlfriend to a hit and run.  And of course they cought the guy who did it because he ran into another car and didn't that other person didn't make it either.  He was drunk of course.  So my friends, Steve, and family and friends of Shannie and to suffer.  Once you lose someone to a drunk driver you life is never the same.  We started using what people call a AA meeting in our town.  I help with the program and fundraiser.  One night the guy that ran into Shannie showed up, I know that he killed my best friend but I walked up to him and said nice to have you, nice of you to have the courage to admit tha tyou have a problem.  Just remember God loves you and I do TOO!
