The Letter


Dear mom

Hope all is fine and well

As you shine and dwell

In your sweat’s well

That ensured I grew and dined well

And with morality shelled 


All I have is sweet memories

That in my mind are memoirs

Of your stories and advices

That vices I would not devise.

And always to make me wise

What of the sweet dishes?

That you took so long to prepare

In small in quantity, you equally shared.


On my homecoming night

To party, I was lured

With fun joy and happiness assured

But life never insured

As the night grew old

Drinking my friends started

But soberness I ensured


In my mind, your advice reverberated

As I was laughed scorned

Just because I never joined

How could I betray you mother?

After all you taught me.

But I unfortunately fell to the pressure

For they said it was leisure

Without measure


The party was over

And was time to come to you mother

With the hope of you seeing

And my new car showing

In me pride finding

My siblings delighting and encouraging.


At the junction,

To the wheel, I clung

Hardly seeing but never blank

Red, orange, green it was time to go

Suddenly screeching and a deafening thud

That severe pain into my body instilled.

Into the ditch I now laid

All I could hear were moans and groans

As I drowned in my own blood



Now on this death bed I lay

He can’t live long I hear the medic say

All I can do is hope and pray

That I may see another day

Sorry to say

On this bed lay

But in whatever may

Mom, please don’t cry  


As I say goodbye

You were always  there

When I needed you most.

Am sorry for the pain

I caused you vain.

Tell my brothers to be brave

For alcohol never to crave,

Even if my life I cannot save

Theirs I promise to keep safe

Them I still love


All I ask of you mother

Is that, me you forgive.

When I am gone

Engrave this letter on my grave

Goodbye, my dearest mother.
