Hearing the sound of the telephone ring
Forced me out of bed.
Listening to the voice of my brother scream
Being unprepared for what he said.

"there was an accident and mom and dad were killed"
Throwing the phone across the room
I fell to my knees as my heart spilled

My life wasn't always so great
But everything else became worse
I thought nothing could make me break
Now i feel as if I've been cursed

At the bitter age of thirteen years old
My parents death, began to take it's toll
On rainy days i wish it snowed
Because raindrops gave my tears control

In school i could never concentrate
Or would refuse to do the work and turn it in late
During lunch I'd give myself time to think
By taking long walks I never ate

There was never a day that would go my way
Ever since my parents were taken away
There are no words that could ever explain
What hides behind my silence and pain

Everyday is always the same
I come home and unpack my things
Then when i get ready to change
I still wait for my mom to call my name

Simple things such as that
Would make me want my mother back
Or remembering the first time i swung a bat
Making my dad proud every time we'd play catch

But every night i start to cry and realize they are gone
I play a song and pray to god there's a heaven up above
I promise to wait and never give up, i know up there i will be loved

But i hope that i don't grow to be old
Because I'm tired of being so alone.

I am really sorry that you lost your parents. Just know that some random person sitting at her computer, read your poem and wanted to give you a hug--you are not alone.
