Meant to be

It’s been 10 years since my mom passed away


She was driving drunk and flipped her car down by the creek


It’s crazy because it feels like it just happened last week


She said she was taking a shortcut to work but I told her not to go that way


I thought with time I would get better but that was just a lie


Every other day instead of going to bed I just cry


I didn’t have anyone to talk to so I tried to forget about it


Then that was when the depression really hit


I substituted people for booze and dope


It was the worst way to cope


Driving drunk one day I thought I was fine


I was taking the same shortcut my mom did that time


Going way too fast for the upcoming curve


I ran off the road and instinctively swerved


This must have been meant to be


I went head on into a 10 year old oak tree


I thought I was ok until I looked to see


My mother standing at the same curve where she left me
