We Cry


The 10th of June, passing of our Son
We Cried
9mins holding him tight, words not spoken
We cried
Time of Death given,8pm
We Cried

Just 7 doors down from home, is all we keep saying
We Cried
6 Drunken teens, drove down our son that night
We Cried
The Fifth Commandment, thou shall not kill
We Cried
Four days later, our son lays beneath the earth

We Cried
The Driver receives 3yrs, is that my sons worth
We Cried
Two years good behavior, he walks the streets
We Cried
We only had One son his name was Micheal, our son
We Cry
It shouldn't have been his NUMBER calling
Still here we Cry

    my heart goes out to you. I lost my main man 11 months ago and my heart is broken unmendable i think about him 24/7. He was 16 i do not live i exist i so much want to be with him. I have other younger children that worry me so much it doesn't make it easier as i look at them and see him and as he is the 2nd son i have lost i am panicky thinking i am gonna lose another i have four more 3 boi's and a gurl, It has drained the energy right out of me. He was 6'3'' and 20 stone hence my nickname for him baby bear. I am 5'7'' and 11 stone had him when i was 16, he's all ino and i can't even think of his name without breaking down. It will never get easier. Just want him home safe and where i can cuddle him and keep him safe: (The sentences they were giving is a joke but thats the system for you, you get that just for assault these days.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
