By the roadside she lay bleeding
nobody attempted to stop
they just sped by without thought
safely cocooned in their cars
some glanced but they did not see
nothing to do we me!
Hit by a car that never stopped at all
saw a blur and heard a bang
being wrapped up in his own affairs
escaping from a robbery
a human life never had his priority
he answered to no authority!
Long gone from his callous hit and run
the young woman clung to life
the rain began to soak her broken body
conscious she tried to speak
but on impact it had severed her spine
vital signs rapidly began to decline!
A row with her parents angrily ran out
at the disapproval over a man
why should she stop seeing him shouted
so what had a criminal record
you cannot change the way that I feel
our love for each other real!
As her vital organs began to shut down
she recalled those last hours
unaware the driver who left her here
to die at the side of the road
was the very person she loved so much
the one with the gentle touch!
Eventually a car did stop to give her aid
it was dad seeking his daughter
devastated finding his child laying there
so badly hurt in the mud alone
rushed to hospital her spirit still strong
recovery hazardous and long!
The truth had yet to be revealed!
