The Worst Day

May 31, 2009
four days till my birthday
and there was no school today
everything seemed to be going my way
until the phone rang
and my mom went silent

she hung up the phone
and tears filled her eyes
what she said next
took everyone by surprise
rebeccas dead
she said
it felt like a blow to the head

how could this be?
we were just talking yesterday
joking and having a blast
but all my memories were in the past

the rest of the week went slower than slow
it rained the whole time
saturday came
and i turned fifteen
instead of having fun
i spent my day at the funeral home
with my family
