Jenny and Matt met at the park,
two young lovers kissing in the dark.
As they started kissing more,
Matt led Jenny to his car.
But when he started to undress her,
she said- this is going too far.
She thought he would stop,
and everything would be okay.
But he pressed his weight on her body,
and commanded her to stay.
She blinked back her tears,
and knew her eye would be black and blue.
She wished he would stop,
but there was nothing she could do.
Ten years later,
Jenny lay in her hospital bed,
wondering to herself,
If Matt was now dead.
As her daughter Michelle,
walked in the door at the young age of ten,
she said mommy- how have u been?
Jenny smiled,
and gave her daughters cheek a kiss.
then thought,
oh God,
how am I going to tell her this?
She took a deep breath,
to put herself at ease.
Then said honey,
your daddy gave me a disease.
So thats why your in here,
and your face is always hot.
Mommy what disease have u got?
Michelle, this isnt easy for me to say,
but I have AIDS,
and soon ill have to go away.
She told her daughter to come to her and sit,
then said baby,
you were born with it.
But'll get better right?
mommy please dont say no.
I'm sorry honey,
but soon ill have to go.
Grandma will be here,
to take care of you,
oh honey,
im so sorry youll have to go through this too.
Mommy please dont go,
Michelle said through her tears.
its ok honey,
ill be in heaven.
Just then Jenny held her daughters hand,
she knew this was her time to say goodbye.
She felt death coming,
she knew she was going to die.
But before her words came out,
her head dropped.
A few seconds later,
her breathing stopped.
Mommy please dont leave me,
you didnt even say goodbye.
why did daddy do this to us,
and why did u have to die?

Another sad story that you've written.  
Curious as to whether these two pieces are about real people.
I believe you have the talent of a writer.
Hope to see a cheerful story next time?
