...is heaven in the yellow pages?...

   ...mommy went to heaven,
but i need her here today...
...my tummy hurts and i fell down,
i need her right away...

  ...operator can you tell me how
to find her in this book?...
...is heaven in the yellow part,
...i don't know where to look...

  ...i think my daddy needs her too,
at night I hear him cry...
...i hear him call her name sometimes,
but I really don't know why...

     ...maybe if I call her,
she will hurry home to me...
  ...is heaven very far away,
is it across the sea?...

     ...she's been gone a long,
long time she needs to come home   now!...
     ...i really need to reach her,
but i simply don't know how...

     ...help me find the number please,
is it listed under "heaven"?...
  ...i can't read these big big words,
i am only seven...

     ...i'm sorry operator,
i didn't mean to make you cry...
  ...is your tummy hurting too,
or is there something in your eye?...

     ...if i call my church maybe they will know...
  ...mommy said when we need help
that's where we should go...

     ...i found the number to my church
tacked up on the wall...
  ...thank you operator,
i'll give them a call...

...why am i dying?...

...went to a party, mom,
i remembered what you said...
...you told me not to drink, mom,
so i drank soda instead...

...i really felt proud inside, mom,
the way you said i would...
...i didn't drink and drive, mom,
even though the others said i should...

...i know i did the right thing, mom,
i know you are always right...
...now the party is finally ending, mom,
as everyone is driving out of sight...

...as i got into my car, mom,
i knew i'd get home in one piece...
...because of the way you raised me,
so responsible and sweet...

...i started to drive away, mom,
but as i pulled out into the road...
      ...the other car didn't see me, mom,
and hit me like a load...

...as i lay there on the pavement, mom,
i hear the policeman say...
              ...the other guy is drunk, mom,
and now i'm the one who will pay...

i'm lying here dying, mom,
i wish you'd get here soon...
...how could this happen to me, mom?
my life just burst like a balloon...

...there is blood all around me, mom,
and most of it is mine...
...i hear the medic say, mom,
i'll die in a short time...

...i just wanted to tell you, mom,
i swear i didn't drink...
...it was the others, mom,
the others didn't think...

...he was probably at
the same party as i...
...the only difference is,
he drank and i will die...

...why do people drink, mom?
It can ruin your whole life...
...i'm feeling sharp pains now,
pains just like a knife...

...the guy who hit me is walking, mom,
and i don't think it's fair...
i'm lying here dying and
all he can do is stare...

...tell my brother not to cry, mom,
tell daddy to be brave...
...and when i go to heaven, mom,
put "daddy's girl" on my grave...

...someone should have told him, mom,
not to drink and drive...
...if only they had told him, mom,
i would still be alive...

...my breath is getting shorter, mom,
i'm becoming very scared...
...please don't cry for me, mom,
when i needed you, you were always there...

...i have one last question, mom,
before i say good bye...
...i didn't drink and drive,
so why am i the one to die?...

...the greatest pain in life...

...the greatest pain in life is not to die,
but to be ignored...

...to lose the person you love so much
to another who doesn't care at all...

...to have someone you care about so much throw a party...
and not tell you about it...

...when your favorite person on earth
neglects to invite you to his graduation...

...to have people think that you don't care...

...the greatest pain in life,
is not to die, but to be forgotten...

...to be left in the dust after another's great achievement...
...to never get a call from a friend,
just saying "hi"....

...when you show someone your innermost thoughts
and they laugh in your face...

...for friends to always be
too busy to console you...

...when you need someone to lift your spirits...
...when it seems like the only person
who cares about you, is you...

...life is full of pain,
but does it ever get better?...

...will people ever care about each other,
and make time for those who are in need?...

...each of us has a part to play
in this great show we call life...

...each of us has a duty to mankind
to tell our friends we love them...

...if you do not care about your friends
you will not be punished...

...you will simply be ignored...
forgotten...
as you have done to others...

...this poem was written by a young girl who committed suicide three years ago...
...perhaps if the people surrounding her had shown a little more love, and had paid more attention to her, her death could have been prevented...
...remember that when going through life, you can't judge a sad, lonely, or suicidal person by their facial expression...
...you need to get to know each person you come in contact with...
...cherish your friendship with them, and above all, show them that you care...
