I remember saying out goodbyes
I owed you two hugs right before I left
Walking to my car I let out a sigh
But I never knew what would happen next
Then you and your grandma got in a fight
She screamed at you and then kicked you out of the house
There was nowhere you could have stayed that night
Tears dripped from my eyes onto my blouse
Woke up the next morning with worried eyes
I called, and I called but nothing happened
Felt so helpless, I did nothing but cry
As bad as it is I thought it was the end
After cries and sobbing nearly all day
Call from the hospital said your okay
