Try Not To Cry

Try not to Cry

Mommy ... Johnny brought a gun to school,

He told his friends that it was cool,

And when he pulled the trigger back,

It shot with a great, huge crack.

Mommy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,

I went to school, got straight A's, and I even got the gold!

When I went to school that day, I never said goodbye,

I'm sorry that I had to go, but Mommy, please don't cry.

When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,

And all because Johnny, got the gun from his brother.

Mommy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,

And please tell Zack, my boyfriend; that it wasn't just a crush.

And tell my sister; that she is the only one now,

And tell my dear, sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now,

And tell my wonderful friends; that they always were the best,

Mommy, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest.

Mommy, tell my teachers; I won't show up for class,

And never to forget this, and please don't let this pass.

Mommy, why'd it have to be me? No one though, deserves this,

But Mommy, it's not fair, I left without a kiss.

And Mommy tell the doctors; I know that they really did try,

I think I even saw one doctor, trying not to cry.

Mommy, I'm slowly dying, with a bullet in my chest,

But Mommy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest.

When I heard that great, big crack, I ran as fast as I could,

Please listen to me if you would,

I wanted to go with college, I wanted to try things that were new,

I guess I'm not going with Daddy, on that trip to the new zoo.

I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,

I wanted to be an actress, I really wanted to live.

But Mommy, I must go now, the time is getting late,

Mommy, tell my Zack, I'm sorry to cancel our date.

I love you Mommy, I always have, I know you know it's true,

And Mommy all I need to say is, "Mommy, I love you."

In memory of the Columbine and Virginia Tech Students

Not at all. Go right ahead.
